Cannondale SM series mountain bike bottom bracket/crankset question.
I have a 1990 Cannondale SM series frame that I want to build back into a ridable bike and have a question about BB/crankset compatibility.
1.) How do I know what will fit as far as BB's go?
2.) Can I use a Hollowtech BB/crankset in an older frame like this? (I am thinking about a Shimano LX FC-M582 Crankset if possible)
if not then what BB/crankset would work? the Cannondale Catalog says that what is in there now is a "Japanese sealed mechanism, bolt axle"
here is an image of the frame if that helps.
