I had bought the Grand Cru crankset two or three years ago and now that I purchased the 127mm BB it works great. Previously I had been having problems shifting into the lowest chainring. I problem I had with a previous 80's Motobecane crank, also. I was using a Shimano BB-UN55 127mm which is symmetrical. I finally spent the time to measure the chain line and it looked to be off by about 2mm. Lo' and behold the Velo Orange 127mm BB is offset by about 2mm. Problem solved! Wish the description said that before I bought the spacers that I now don't need. c'est la vie.
Purchased a few years back on a late 60's Raleigh restoration project. Used as a trainer weekdays and on the road during weekends. Smooth running with no play ( Did not use a dial gauge) while rotating by hand. And yes new bearing seals are a little stiff when rotating by hand - starting torque. Not to worry they wear in just fine unless the bearing is damaged. All in all a great product for the money, highly recommended.
I use these on every restoration project! Smooth and I know I can ignore the bottom bracket, ongoing, during periioding maintenance. And a great value.
Purchased this item years ago for my old PX-10-LE. Wow, what a great addition to its last rebuild. The bearings are smooth as butter, and there is no play in the crank spindle. It really made the bike feel better, there is no movement as one watches the chainrings spin around! I couldn't eliminate that slight wobble with the old cup and cone bearings.
(First time customer) After receiving this B.B. and a pair of hubs, I came away with a grateful feeling, and an immediate desire to purchase more, which I will. It is definitely refreshing to run across a business that sells quality products at a good price. Thanks for that. These parts are light, run smooth, and have class written all over them, so to speak.
Then there's the niche factor: For people who are looking to restore their beloved vintage bikes, these guys offer valuable products that are not exactly flooding the market. And once again, offer them at a great price.
I am very satisfied.
