I've been looking for a new BB and I really like the Deity Armada, but it says that it only fits 73mm Spanish BB shells... What does that mean? I know that I need a Spanish 19mm. Does that mean that the bearings themselves are wider, or is it talking about the spacer rod thing? If it's talking about the spacer rod thing, then I'll just use my old one but put the Deity bearings in.

Here's the BB Deity Armada Spanish BB

bb shell is 73 mm wide.

If you use a span bb you'll be ok, just make sure your spindle is long enough.

I just didn't know if the "73mm" was significant because I've never seen that before.

I've got the Subrosa Bitchin' Cranks and the frame is a Kink Liberty 2013, will it work?

Measure the width of you kink liberty BB if it is less than or equal to 73mm. If it does, you're probably fine.
(you're probably fine anyway, 73mm isn't much)

It mentions 73mm because you can run an MTB BB/crank there.
MTB BB is either 73mm or 83mm wide.

The only problem is the spacer that comes with the BB is either too wide or too narrow.

I can just use my old spacer if that's a problem. I just need to know if the bearings are the same size as BMX bearings (because this BB is technically for MTB Dirt-Jumping bikes).

Dude, just get a different bb if you are so worried.
