    I’m running a square taper in mine – but it should be set up as per instructions for a 73mm shell…

    One spacer for 73mm shell

    Yup, just found out it was 73mm 🙂

    Whipped a spacer out (force of habit sticking 2 in) and my front big ring changing woes have gone!!!

    Cheers for the reply 🙂

    For those running HT2 bottom brackets, how many spacers do you have in??

    Just one on the drive and none on the left , you should notice the bb preload is to high if you use to many

    Just to be awkward, I’m running 2 spacers, for some reason my XTR M970 cranks wouldn’t pre-load with just one spacer, the pre-load ring spun off the end of the threads without doing anything. Everything’s tight and bottomed out correctly, and the crank was OK on my last frame so I’m assuming the shell must be slightly narrower than the tolerance. Few hundred miles in now so I’m confident it’s all together as it should be, it’d have loosened or killed the bearings by now if it was, it’s just odd.
