Need the spacers with BB386 EVO crank?
I am getting ready to install a new FSA K-Force Light BB386EVO crank on my Giant TCR Advanced frame with BSA 68mm BB. I will also be installing the matching BB cups that screw into the frame. The crank came with three thin metal spacers (in addition to the wave washer). I can't find installation instructions anywhere, especially not in the box or on the FSA site. Do I need to use the spacers? Under what conditions? How many? On both sides? Are they for chain line or other purpose? I haven't ever used spacers before on my standard BSA cranks with BSA BB. Thanks to anyone who can answer these questions.
