    Thanks guys, much appreciated.

    billyboy – 2 x 1.5mm and 2 x 1mm is 8 quid. For a 5mm band of cheap metal. One more spacer and it’s the same price as a new complete Deore BB. Bonkers.

    I need a few spacers – can’t even begin to consider paying £1.99 each from CRC for the Hope ones.

    Where does them cheaper?

    Yup – got a wee little bag (probably from a Shimano BB) with 4 spacers in, not sure on the sizes but there’s more than 5mm in total. I think Shimano standard is 2x 2.5, 1x 1.8 and 1x 0.7mm, so I’d guess that.

    Yours if they’re any good, drop me your address (email in profile).

    Ditto the above. Apart from my email isn’t the same. 🙂

    steveh / Pimpmaster – Thank you for your offers.

    My faith in humanity is restored! 😉

    or find that old cassette in the spares box and get the spacers out of that. File off the 3 tabs on the inside and they’re the same size as BB spacers. I replaced the naff Hope plastic spacers on my Hope BB (before they changed them to aluminium)like this.
