Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Anyone run a Shimano Hollowtech II road crank with a 73mm bb?

Figure someone here would be more likely to be doing this. I would just like to confirm that a Shimano external BB road crank (like a Sora triple) can be run on a 73mm bb using an MTB BB?

Considering you already asked in Mechanics, it looks like the crank will work. You will just need to use shorter spacers in place of parts #6 and #11
