Anybody ever fitted this setup to a 68mm frame, GXP Crank

I know what I'm doing and I'm totally puzzled why I'm having such grief..!! :crazy:

Basically BB all fits in frame but when I torque the crank arm up it just locks it up solid..??

I know about the GXP spacers for hope BB etc..

I'm pulling my hair out..lol

Anybody any ideas welcome.. :thumbup:

Sounds like you have too many spacers behind the cups?

All sorted now...wooohooo..!!

Turns out the GXP spacers were to large, Only like three hairs to thick but enough to cause mega problems..

The build continues.....
