Can I use this crankset with bb-rs500 ITA bottom bracket instead of the included BSA one?
15 Feb 2021
Thank you for your enquiry, yes will fit fine

What's the difference between this and a Shimano Alfine FC-S400?
03 Dec 2020
S501 is a newer model.

Which tool is required to fit the included BB?
23 Aug 2020
For this you would need a hollow tech 2 style of BB tool- such as the Park Tool BBT-9.
Can I use this crankset on a Brompton?

Can I use this crankset on a Brompton?
The chainset gives 42.7mm chain line, ... this is the measurement from the centre line of the bike to the middle of the ring, I THINK that's pretty perfect for a Brompton, HOWEVER there may be issues of frame clearance, copy and paste this linkto read an article of someone trying something similar:
Can i use this with Shimano Saint M810 Shadow 9-Speed Rear Mech
18 May 2019
with a Shimano XT M770 9 Speed MTB Cassette 11-34 or HG80 9 Speed Cassette

Yes, this should work okay.

I have a 68mm bottom bracket shell on my bike but my current chain line is 50mm and works fine. Is it possible to add a spacer to this bottom bracket shell to increase the chainline
You may be able to add some spacers, but you are unlikely to get from 42.7 to 50mm.

Thanks 08/10/18
I have an old Raleigh Rapide would the bottom bracket fit?
11 May 2018
Providing the frame is BSA threaded and 68mm bottom bracket shell this should fit, but we would recommend we could not give 100% confirmation until test fitting.

Width Of Bb Shell?
22 Dec 2016
I'm intending to fit this on a bike with a 73mm BB shell, and a Rohloff hub (a Thorn Raven Sport Tour, in fact) - will it fit the shell width, and will the chainline be OK?
Hi, unfortunately this will not work. The bottom bracket shell is 68mm Road & it is not compatible with anything else I'm afraid.

Bottom Bracket Included?
11 Sep 2016
The info implies that the bottom bracket is included, but this seems unusual. Can you confirm that I will not end to purchase an additional bottom bracket? If I do need to, can you recommend on for this chain set?
Duncan Gray

This chainset does indeed include a bottom bracket.

03 Aug 2016
Could you confirm that it's 110mm PCD as it says in description or 130mm PCD?

The PCD for this chainset is actually 130mm, the description has been amended to now show this.

May seem a strange question but would this work with a 9spd chain.

Looking to run it with a single 9 set up

Yes this chainset has a chainring that is designed to be used with a 9spd chain so should be fine for what you're looking to use it for.

Yes, this is definitely the silver version of this chainset.
