I need to get hold of a spacer to go on the bottom bracket so that my crankset sit slightly further out as my front mech can't quite get down to the bottom cog. Is there such a thing and what's it called as I can't find anything online. Thanks

Fitted a new shimano deore bb on my mountain bike last year and there were spacers included with that, 1mm (x2) and 3.5mm Just google shimano bb spacer or try sjs cycles.

With the new crankset the small cog is only about 2mm away from the back forks and the mech doesn't drop down that far. I need a spacer between the frame and the crankset

That looks like an internal/square taper BB, which means that fitting a spacer is not an option. You need a BB with a longer axle. Whatever chainset you have should also tell you somewhere what length BB you need.

If I get a bb with a longer axle will that not just be longer on the outside? My mech won't go in far enough so I was thinking that the crankset needs to come out further?
