I don't know brand specifics on the rest of the bike,
But Phil Wood BB's can also be shifted
by pressing the axle thru the bearings to create asymmetry.
because the axle itself is smooth and a tight press fit in the bearings.
I have done this by stacking the 2 removal/installation tools Up
plus adding a Fender washer or 2 for strength and using a crank fixing bolt
[and a crescent wrench to hold it (opposite end) , or just stick the L crank arm on]..
tighten the bolt and it moves the axle within the bearings.
Of course you can also ship the BB back to San Jose,
and they will put in a different length axle in.
for less than buying a new BB..
