Question on FSA cranks...

I'm looking to buy an FSA crankset, the SLK MegaExo. I'm new to cranksets with integrated bottom brackets, and I was wondering about the measurements on them. FSA lists the SLK as BC-1.37" x 68mm. The measurement on my bottom bracket now is 68mm x 113mm. Does anybody know what that BC number means, and if so, will the crank be compatible with my bike?

The 68 is BB shell width and indicates english thread for both. The 113 is spindle length .

It's likely to be compatible with your bike but perhaps not with your bottom bracket. I believe the FSA SLK wants a 108mm ISIS BB.
