- MTB Bottom Bracket on a Road Bike
Does anyone know what a road bike HTII bottom bracket measures total width? – ie the full width when the cups are in place on the bike?
I need to install some cranks first thing and all I have is a XT MTB BB
The cups will obviously screw in and I can just ditch the inner sleeve or cut it down a bit, reading elsewhere, someone is saying the the road cups are 1mm narrower [10mm Vs 11mm] so in theory a 1mm spacer each side should bring it all where it needs to be.
Can anyone save me the trial and error time in the morning?

I’ve done it a few times with no problems on our bikes over the years. Although at the moment I’m running a Truvativ MTB crankset on my road bike as needed easier gears for a weeks riding in the Alps and couldn’t afford a compact chainset and the original one was massive.Posted 7 years ago
