Need an ISIS sort of fast

Alright well due to a long story i dont feel like explaining my old BB is crapped out, it was probably due for a replacement anyways but yea. Well my headset+derailleur hanger is coming in friday so that i thought would allow me to build up this frame and have it ridable. But obviously now a BB is needed. I need to know of a place that ships fast, and an ISIS BB maybe under 70 dollars? Can somebody help?

FSA makes a bunch. Find out your size and find a place online in the states that has them

Check with the LBS. Go local if you need something immediately.

I bought everything for my road bike build over the phone, but was sent the wrong bottom bracket...I definitely wanted to ride it as soon as possible, so I headed over to the LBS. They didn't have one in stock, but got it for me the next day. Fair price too.

Would you say 40 bucks is a good price for it?

Oh, and does it use the regular ISIS deep drive tool thing. Not like truvativ which i believe requires a special tool to install/remove

The FSA/PP is a great choice and what I recommend for ISIS cranksets. Road/MTB and recumbent.
