Ok, so there have been many threads about what to do about old viscount/lambert bottom brackets.
1) re-thread for an italian size
2) file tubes that stick into the bb shell so a cartraige bb will work
3) get a (very expensive) phil wood bb to replace
4) get new bearing and keep the old spindle that will break sooner or later
i may have missed a few others.
nobody seems to agree on exactly what to do!
i am converting a Viscount to a fixed gear commuter city bike so i dont want my bb snapping on me, but i want to fix this problem in a cheap way too (ruling out phil wood bb)
Can we have a consensus on what to do?
ps i want to use a modern crank too
