I have a 68mm English threaded frame. When I came to install the SRAM team GXP BB in the frame I found that there were two 2.5mm spacers in the box. I wasn't sure whether to use these spacers or not. I found some different opinions online so I checked the SRAM instructions. The sram online instructions say that I need both 2.5mm spacers however some people say this is an error from SRAM. They seem to say that the crank will cease up if they use two spacers.
Does anyone know what spacers I should use. Anyone got the same BB and frame BB size? What did you do?
I have installed it with no spacers as quite a few people said I shouldn't use them. There is a bit of creaking coming from somewhere and there is a very tiny amount of play in the cranks. I'm guessing the noise is coming from there and I have a feeling that the problem stems from having no spacers.
I'd suggest you start again with the install.
Grease on the threads and cups properly tight.
NDS crank bolt also properly tight.
The GXP system locks the NDS of the spindle to the NDS bearing so there should be no possibility of play.
Properly installed it's an excellent, simple system.
How many drivers does a buggy have?
So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
