Stuffed an O ring over the Campag 111 cartridge BB,
before the crank arm went on ..
squeaks a bit when not wet, but OK.
the old campag cups were thick to put that CCW rifling in.
traded away a 110 SKF Sachs BB that had lip seals in the cup, sealed bearing
cartridge behind that..
Designers wanted the axles shorter for stiffness,
rather than long enough to double seal the BB
so that Idea went nowhere.
