In trying to avoid GXP bottom bearing issues (which apparently don't exist anymore?) I've run into another issue:
Frame: 68mm BSA
BB: Ultegra HT2 + single sided GXP adaptor (i.e. not a double sided Hope adaptor) on the inside of the NDS bearing (as per instructions).
Crank: Sram Apex GXP
Issue: There doesn't seem to be enough axle length coming through the NDS cup for the crank to be tightened without on the bearing. The bearing either spins with the play in the NDS crank, or starts binding way before the NDS crank bolt is sufficiently torqued to remove play.
The only way it torques-up and spins is with the adaptor on the outside of the NDS bearing, but it thought rules were rules..?
TL;DR: GXP to HT2 adaptor only works when installed in reverse. Am I compromising anything by leaving it?
