Im upgrading from my stolen score 2011 frame to mutiny rune frame and I didnt buy any bearings with the frame. Will I be able to use bearings from my old frame? Im not sure if the tube spacer will be long enough for the new frame.

The Tube spacer will be OK. As long as they both have Mid BB's, then the bearings will transfer, same as if the both have integrated headsets.

so its not possible that the bb will be longer or shorter in the new frame? I mean the way this is http://www.odysseybmx.com/dailyword/archives/i%20washers%20loose.jpg

You should be fine to reuse them, just don't beat them up when knocking them out. If the tube spacer is too short just use a few crank spacers to make it the right length.

It's HIGHLY unlikely. The washers are for the outside to make sure the crank arms are aligned properly
