'99ish Campi BB Qs
I realize this is awful of me but I can't recall if the Record group on my MegaProXLTi is '99 or 2000 but I am not sure it makes a difference for this.
the BB is need of replacement which is annoying because I am certain there is no more than 2000 mi on the bike. the only marking I see on the back of the cranks are 2/8 on both and 2/1 on the driveside and 1/1 on the non. according to the '99 parts catalog the spindle lenght is 102, however in typical Campi style there is no mention of taper.
IIRC in '95/96ish Campi switched to JIS taper correct? since this BB did not seem to last very long I was considering using the VO Grand Cru BB for 1/3 the price. or maybe Phil Wood.
I have not taken it apart yet but judging from the pics it appears there is no way to replace the bearings like the first Campi cartridge BB right?
