My crankset came with pedal washers. Do I really need to use them? September 26, 2017 16:27 Yes, you should use the included pedal washers with all cranksets. Related articles Just got a new crank and it came with some spacers. How do I know where they go, and how do I install my new crankset? I have installed my GXP bottom bracket, but there is space between the spider and dive side bearing. Is this normal? I want to use a Direct Mount 1x chainring with my direct mount capable crankset. What offset chainring do I need? I’m not sure what bottom bracket type I have, but I have measurements from my frame. Can you tell me what works? My Omnium crank comes really close to my frame’s chainstay and/or the chain is not straight. Can I space the crank out using spacers to change the chain line?
