    If the Blur has a 68mm BB shell it should fit fine. Don’t think it will fit a 73mm shell.

    But would you want 53/39 chainrings on your MTB? And would the front mech fit around the suspension linkages on the blur if it was above a 53 chainring?

    and might the rings foul the stays (or are you putting smaller ones on)

    (whatever happened to the guy with the anthem and the crushed BB ??)

    compact 50/34 should work i think


    probably find the crank arms foul on the stays regardless of ring size.

    Will a newish style Shimano 7800 (not the brand spanking 7900) duraace crankset with external BB fit a Santa Cruz Blur. Is the bb shell of a MTB to narrow to fit a road crank?

    Think it would look good but dont want to buy one and try and fit it as the shop wont take it back, anyone tryed it?

    Cheers J

    Cheers chaps, will do some measuring, never even thought of the size of the rings !!!!!!

    Then you’re a moron! 😉

    You can’t fit smaller than a 34t inner on there, so you’ll need some fairly big legs. Unless you buy a triple, when you can have a 30t inner.
