    I have a 7008 dura ace bottom bracket on one of my bikes and a Bontrager bottom bracket on the other.
    My question is:
    is it possible to run the Dura ace chain set on the Bontrager bottom bracket and visa versa?

    has anyone tried this???

    thanks in advance

    can't see an issue if the bbs are identical in bore (english or italian) and length (either for double or triple chainset), and both the same fitting (square taper/isis/splined etc).

    I know that the whode of the MTB range are compatible with each other and raceface. not sure that helps though.

    I think it is one of them 'rare' industry standards, so is should work fine.Measure from the outside of the bearing cups and if its the same distance it should work
