Armed with the correct bottom bracket tool and a 3/8″ ratchet I fitted the Shimano DEORE SLX XT BB-MT800 bottom bracket along with the SHIMANO DEORE XT HOLLOWTECH II MTB Crankset 1×11-speed the FC-M8000-1 crank and the Shimano Deore XT M8000 Chainring. The Deore CN-HG601 chain meshed nicely with the Shimano CS-M5100 Deore 11-speed cassette and 11-speed Shimano Deore M5100 rear derailleur (Shadow SGS).

I’ve not fitted the shifter cable yet, so I can’t test how well it shifts or if there’s enough clearance or chain across the cassette. We shall see!
