Yeah, but I was a bit confuzzled, as this would be my first encounter with external bottom brackets. I wasn't sure just what you meant by spacers, and how they were used. Never realized they were...
Looking at this link from Sram,
it appears I wouldn't need a new bottom bracket as you say. It looks as...
I'm kinda having the jones for a nice steel 29er hardtail, and have pretty much decided on the Gunnar Rockhound. Possibly a Niner MCR, but I like the idea of an American made steel frame.
If you haven't pulled the trigger yet, Colorado Cyclist is blowing the CX 140 and MX 140 in selected sizes for $100. Maybe you'll get lucky ond they have your size.
