Shimano campy taper bottom brackets
My girlfriend took her bike into an LBS in seattle (recycled cycles) a few months ago to get her bottom bracket replaced. Just today she asked me to check out the clicking sound in her drivetrain and we realized that her fixed cup was loose. The flange on the outside of the cup was sticking out by about 1mm.
Clearly we have to tighten it, but the other thing that came out was that they sold her a shimano bottom bracket. She has a Campy victory crank (from the mid nineties). After telling her that she didn't need to worry about campy taper, they told her that it was a bottom bracket made by shimano with campy taper.
I'm under the impression that shimano has never made campy taper bottom brackets. Internet searches seem to agree. What do you folks think? Did shimano make campy compatible bottom brackets?
