Bottom bracket - triple to double
I have a 2003 Rocky Mountain Metro which I converted from a hybrid to a road bike....well it's an ongoing process. According to Bikepedia
, the bottom bracket is a square taper 73mm x 113mm spindle, with a cheap triple 48x28x28 Shimano Nexave crank. Well, the BB is in need of replacement (sloppy), and the chainrings are getting a little worn.
Found a good deal on a DuraAce 7700 crankset. Can I just get a 73x113 octalink BB to work with this crank or should the spindle be shorter or longer than 113mm since I'm going from triple to double? Anything else I would need?
