    Hi all! I am building up my first mountain bike (I'm a roadie originally) and have some questions about sizing/buying the right components. I have the frame, but I'm not sure how to make certain I'm buying some of the right stuff. So...

    1. How do I measure for the bottom bracket? spindle length/width

    2. If I use XTR integrated shifters/brakes do I have to use a rapid rise rear derailleur or can I use normal action?

    Thanks a bunch!!
