Any IF Planet-X owners out there?
Just building mine up and have a problem!
Trying to run Ultegra Octalink Cranks but
with a BB-6500 bottom bracket the 109.5mm
BB the inner ring hits the chainstay...with
118.5mm triple BB which IF told me to use the
chain line on the inner ring is way off the big
cog in the back and the chain comes off...what gives???
HELP in Colorado

those things can be so damn tempermental. It's the only way to go though. My LBS had a very difficult time getting it to shift properly, but finally resloved the issue. You can't cross the gears up though.

Sorry that I can't relate, but there's no problem running a Campy 9 speed drivetrain on my Planet Cross :-)

After talking to IF AGAIN, it turns out you need
a XTR model M952 68X116 mm Bottom Bracket
This will make the third BB !
Anyone need a new BB-6500 or BB-6503?
