    As above,
    bought the wrong size,,83mm is DH specific,looking for a 73mm in decent codition.

    Can’t you just send it back?

    or you can cut it down to size.

    Can’t do either,got the BB in Halfords sale,they didn’t have the size I needed so no exchange possible,,also,you can’t cut them down,due to there being a rubber seal fitted to an end recess.
    I can fit a Shimano one with a bit of a squeeze but would prefer a Hope one.
    I’m sure someone has an old hope BB lying round somewhere they don’t use anymore 😉

    You can cut them down, I have. You have to cut a section out of the middle, then glue/tape them back together.

    Or do without it, its only purpose is an additional internal seal, its not structural. Just think of the grams you could save!
