is it ok to use your bottom bracket without the middle spacer thing that looks like a tube? i have a europrean bb

No it's not. That spacer keeps the bearings from being pushed apart. More in depth, it keeps the inner bearing race of the sealed bearing braced so that the pressure from the cranks does not separate the inner race from the outer one.

Your bottom bracket will be shot real quick if you don't use that.


I do stuff and I'm not good at it.
