I assume (only an assumption, so best to measure) that the BB shell width is 73mm (mtn bike"), and the 122.5 might refer to the spindle length.
I'm right, the 73mm stays the same (part of the frame) and you have to get a BB made for that. But the spindle length may change according to the crankset's offset. Usually crank specs mention recommended spindle length someplace.
