could you pls help me to complete the build

Today I was going to complete my build installing bottom brackets. I'm not the bike guy, don't know nothing, I had carbon frame with horizontal dropouts and carbon track wheels. I thought frame was track because of dropouts, but it happened that it's road frame with 130mm rear spacing. And guy in bike shop told me that he couldn't install bottom bracket on this one because it wouldn't work on it. LAter, when I came home to check everything, I didn't notice any problems, why it couldn't work. I read on web about spacers which I could(should) use.
Could anybody pls tell me what to do? just install bottombracket and it's gonna be alright? or there's some different problem? Hope for your help.

It's a TT frame, hence the 130mm spacing and horizontal dropouts.

The guy who couldn't install a bottom bracket is an idiot and should go work at Old Navy. All you need to do is add a 5mm axle spacer to each side of your rear hub's hardware, which will re-space your axle to 130mm.

Forget the bottom bracket for a minute. What crankset are you trying to use?

I have no idea what else you're carrying on about.
He said that there's gonna be something bad if he install it. It wouldn't work fine. Something gonna scratch something. I don't remember exactly what he said, because, as I said earlier I'm not the bike guy and I used to trust those who working with bikes.

So rear spacing 130mm., bottom bracket should be 68x110, right? crankset I'm using is some sugino 46T
and everything gonna work fine with no spacers or other ****?
And thank you so much. Tommorow I'll visit other bike shop, now I have more info about that.

You (we) need to know the exact model crank in order to but the correct bottom bracket. 110mm maybe correct or wrong.

You bike shop should have axle spacers. Or you can use the appropriate number of thin washers (hardware store) that when stacked together equal 5mm for each side. Put them in between the cone and locknut.

No Sugino crankset that I know of uses a 110mm spindle.

Considering what the dude already told him, I highly doubt they'll know what an axle spacer is.

I don't think that they have spacers or even know what is it. this bike shop is a crap, we got it today even though it was one of the biggest bike shops in my city
btw thank you for your advice about spacers

So you're putting a $45 crankset on a carbon bike with carbon wheels?

Assuming your BB shell is English-threaded, you'll need a 68x103mm bottom bracket to get a good chainline.

lol, yes, sounds weird. But, as I said earlier, it just happened that I have all this, so decided to build something. If I like everything, I will upgrade it later. I love how rotor cranksets look like. Btw could you pls tell me what the difference between cranksets? only weight and durability?
Thank you so much for advice on crankset
