bottom bracket length

Postby nickyburnell » Tue Oct 16, 2012 20:50 pm

Hi again, changing from Truativ BB (square fitting) to Shimano Octa. Are there any differences in the length required. Bike has 113mm, I need a new Shimano BB but the tired out one that came with the chanset is 118. What I'm asking is, is there a diference that I should take into account because of the Oct fitting verses the square.

Thanks

Road Octalink (105, Ultegra, DA) come in 109 for double/compact or 118 for triples

For the record, 118mm did the job.
