That will not just be an upgrade; that will be Extreme Makeover: Bike Edition.

Haha yeah im planning on the e.13 soon im ordering the trail or park any day now, excpet i need a new bb. Mine right now is 68x113 and the trail or park is 73 x 113. Normally this wouldn't be hard to find but my cranks have powerspline, and almost all the bottom brackets i see are ISIS splined. Where can i find a good power splined BB?

it's proprietary to truvativ AFAIK. 68's are compatible with 73 shells.

So, just to clarify I would not have to buy a new bb if the shell on the new transition is 73?

I hear you, I really need a new frame for what I do when I first bought the bike I thought I was just going to do some trails maybe some jumps and now all I do is park and dj so as you can see, worst possible choice of bike. If there were any possible way of getting a 07 P. Series frame, would that be a better choice than the transition?

Just giving you a bad time. Ps are good I suppose but I think you are on the right track with the T or P. Transition is a great local company; the owners are super good guys. If you want to still give yourself the option of throwing some trail riding in, take a second look at the Vagrant.

You're in Woodinville huh? Is there still Gold Creek Stables there? I raced motorcycles in their little indoor horse arena a lifetime ago.

Definitley going SS on the ToP. I'm looking at buying the e.thirteen STS chainguide/bashguard for my current setup, then if I ever go complete SS with no chain tensioner and all that stuff, I'll just ditch the chainguide and use the bashguard. I was looking into the Vagrant, but I decided the only time i trailride/freeride is at whistler every summer, where I just rent out thier kona stabs, which my friend and I both seem to break everytime we go there. So anyways, I think the ToP is a better choice for my riding. Must say the Vagrant is sick though.

yup. you can use the same bb. there's an adapter that your lbs can install for you that will let it work. i had the same problem too, going from my hardrock to a p.2 cromo, but turns out it wasn't really a problem at all.

It is so. If you install one of those ISIS 68/73 suckers on a 68mm shell, it looks like a whole bunch of the adjustable cup hangs out. Because it does. But it works! Just make sure to torque the bejeebus out of your crankbolts.

Wait, I'm lost. What is this adapter you are talking about?

All you should have to do to run a 68/73mm BB on a 73mm BB shell is remove the 5mm spacer...

It will look like a 73mm BB with a 5mm spacer...

Someone please explain what is going on here.

It's like chaos!!11!!1!!

You will not need a new BB, nor will you need a spacer or an adapter. You will simply have to remove a 5mm spacer from you existing BB.
