    ISIS BB

    Hey great, you dont know what the length is do you? when ordering from Webcyclery they have all these options in length and i'll be damned if i dont have a Clue and even know how to measure it to get the rightone.
    they have 68x108, 68x113, 68Ex113, 68x118, 70x108, ( i am thinking that it's this one)73x113 but hell i still dont have a clue.

    help:wtc:

    You'll need the 68 x 118, that's the spindle size that the Tryall isis bb's for mods are. A 73mm shell will work too, if you get a spacer with them. If you get anything like a 128mm spindle, it might give you a screwy chainline since the dropout spacing on mods is much narrower than on stocks.

    thank you

    is that what you are running on your Ech team (or MOD) is the 68X118?

    so if i go with a 73x118 i should be ok. only if a get a spacer for the chain alignment?

    thank you

    I don't ride maude, but that is the size of bb that you will need to buy. The bb shell size, 68 and 73mm, won't really affect the chainline. If you do get the 78 and use a spacer, the chain will be 2.5mm farther outwards than with the 68mm shell. I don't think this will be necessary, since the Koxx mods run the 68mm shell with no chainline issues. Besides, 2.5mm will be virtually unnoticeable. Go for the 68 x 118, if they have it. If not, then 73 x 118 will be fine.

    Woah woah woah

    I just bought my echo team and i tried a race face dh with a 118 spindle and it was too wide. the chainline was terrible.

    i run an acs claw and the 113 is perfect. i think its a 68 shell but i'm not sure as my race face can fit either 68 or 73.

    But i guess it really depends on what parts you run. but for thsee parts :

    Echo team mod, bonz mod cranks, acs claws freewheel i would strongly suggest running a 113

    thanks DanerousDave: I went home and did some measureing and it looks like the 113 will be a little better off too. B/c im running a rear freewheel (CK) with a square tappered BB now. it's on a monty xlite for the timebeing, but will running the FSA 68x113 with the BONZ Cranks. Thank to all of the help from you guys I will be broke. But the Bike will Ride and that's the MOST important thing......right? :joshers:
