    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?
    I prefer Eau de Tri-flow. Seriously, that shiz smells good!

    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
