    Im getting ready to order a blackspire NS1 chainguide. My bike has a 68mm bb. Do I need to order a seperate bb, like -e type, or one with longer splined arms, like 118 over 113 or will a standard 68mm work?

    Thanks in advance. Please no E-thirteen testimonials if you can help it. ;)

    No, just use your bb you have if it is a bb that uses a spacer then dont run the spacer and the guide acts as your spacer.

    What kind of BB do you have? Truvativ and FSA bbs (not sure if others do now) use a little 2.5mm spacer on the drive side if you install it into a 68mm BB shell because they are really 73mm threaded but made to be compatible with both.
