If bearing of a spanish and a mid bb is same, whats the difference?
I have a ns metropolis and it says i have a spanish bb, can i buy a mid to replace it if i want to change my crankset to a 2peace one?

No. The outer diameter is different. If you're looking directly at them, they do t look similar at all.

Spanish can be hard to find and they generally suck, all j can say is don't run a Spanish with a 22mm spindle ID, you'll go through bearings every time it rains. Just think about it. Not enough room for bearings means small bearings which also means crushed bearings
