- MTB chainset on a 'Cross Bike ?
I've got my brain in a twist over this one …
I want to use my SLX chainset on a 'Cross Bike (68mm shell / 130mm dropouts)
Should I use an MTB BB or a Road BB? Will I need to source extra BB spacers to use a road BB with an MTB chainset (longer axle?)
And what about the chainline? Won't somebody please think of the chainline!
Anyone done something similar?

I used an slx chainset on my major jake without any problems, It did feel wider than the FSA gossamer cx original that was on but i put that down to there being more angle on the slx arms than the FSA CX ones but could be wrong.
Can't comment on the gears as i ran it 1×9. I did run a pauls chain keeper which worked fine.Posted 7 years ago
