I have a 2005 Lemond which is supposed to have 109.5 bottom bracket. My current BB, which is frozen to my frame, is an ISIS drive BB. I have can not find an ISIS in 109.5mm.
My question: Will a 108mm BB work?

109.5mm is a common Shimano Octalink bottom bracket size ...are you confusing the two systems?
switching to a 108 from the intended 109.5mm will give you a 0.75mm reduction in chainline and crank/frame clearance. Not too much.

A 110mm would be a closer match.

It's definitely an ISIS BB. I'm just not sure what size it is. But the Lemond websize states that all their bikes use a 109.5 English BB.
