I am rebuilding an old Bianchi that has the weird french style BB. I had spent weeks searching for a bottom bracket, but this is the only one that I could get my hands on. When it got here I was amazed at the quality and replacing the original plastic non-drive threaded part definitely is an upgrade.
Bought the 118mm for my 1970s Nord France fixie build. Worked perfectly.
super easy to install, works perfectly on my 1960s hutsebaut track bike! stuck a sugino messenger crankset on it and it is holding up strong!
Easy to install, works perfectly.
A friend gave me an early 1970's Peugeot frame (French threaded bottom bracket of course) without any components on it and I turned it into a single-speed fixie with this part. The frame's bottom bracket shell width (without any components installed) is 68 mm. I ended up buying the 118mm bottom bracket version and it worked perfectly.
