French to English Tapping
About a month ago or more, i bought an old peugot frame to convert to a fixie. Worked great for a bit but the bottom bracket is gone. It's French Threaded.
A guy at the LBS where I bought the frame says he can retap it to English Threads. The owner of another LBS says it can't be done.
The frame isn't worth much to me now, at least not enough to invest in new French Threaded components. They're going to charge me 15 for the retap, so I'm going to let them give it a whirl. Was just wondering what the Guru's here thought?
