Help me interpret the numbers in my bottom bracket.
The numbers show:
RUN! ITS GONNA BLOW!
68 millimeter Width for the BB itself.
113.5 spindle length. The L might mean the left side is longer than the right.
1.37x24t is standard 'Euro' thread.
51 may be the distance in mm between the races on the spindle
Correct except the 1.37x24t is actually known as "English", "BS" (British Standard) or ISO threading and is by far the most common type now.
