Campy bottom bracket question
Pretty simple. It's coming off of a vintage touring bike. Everything (post washing) is in lovely condition. I'm just kinda confused about how many bearings I SHOULD have.
Note: I made damn sure I didn't lose any down the sink. I'm not that stupid.
'''96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '12 Surly Pacer, All are 3x8,9 or 10. It is hilly around here!
It sounds like you lost one so look inside the bb shell or cups. All of the loose ball cup-and-cone bb's I've ever seen used nine 1/4" balls per side with retainers and eleven 1/4" balls per side with no retainers.
