    Are there campagnolo 101mm square tapered bottom brackets?

    I need an as short axis as possible square tapered bottom bracket with ISO (campi) square taper. I know there are 102mm one, ebay shows plenty. A Google search however also shows 101 record ones (however in the $200 range) Is this a typo - or are there 101 and 102 Campagnolo square tapered bottom brackets?
    Thanks

    Thanks for your answer, I saw those kind on ebay even cheaper (102mm).
    But my question is, are there 101 mm bottom brackets - beyond the 102mm ones?

    So if yes, is there/ was there a reason for that? from a certain year on? for a certain model series?
    Thanks

    Campy never offered a 101mm BB. Also, keep in mind that it would only move the chainrings by .5mm. What's the need for such a small change? You could get an expensive Phil Wood BB that has an adjustable chainline.

    Thanks for your reply, I know about the 0.5mm impact and the Phil wood option. So please just confirm for me that those websites below have all typos in regard of the 101mm (or may be they measure different in those oversee countries?) - and I won't be confused anymore.
    Thanks

    101??? never seen those, not seen that even in the catalogs. Either way, i doubt the bicycle will notice a difference of half of a millimeter in the driver side if you put a 102 BB shell in there.

    Hey Op what are u trying to do??? That could help a lot. My only guess is a fixie and even with fixies from 102 to 111 are around 3 mm per side, the chain won't notice.

    If the chainring sits on the inside position on the crank arm ,
    you fit spacers between the chainring and the crank arm, around the bolt.
    And move the chainring inward.

    Yes Phil Wood BB is quite adjustable to the last MM by the way they are made.

    +1 Asking odd questions like this with no explanation makes us question what you want to do, rather than offer help.
    Why "derailer" is the correct way to spell the gear-change mechanism: sheldonbrown.com/derailer.html

    Yes, but they are asymetrical.
