Where would you guys suggest I get a decent/cheap BB for this thing? Also, silly question, can I use the cranks from my conversion on a track BB? I like 'em and don't want this thing to get too expensive. Thanks.
Are your cranks are square taper Iím guessing yes? You can get square taper b.b. anywhere? leanth is the key.
Both shops talked about here could help you out Iím sure.
Cheers

If Keith is agreeable, I can bring my Cramerotti to him for BB removal and it's yours Jet. I can't speak of it's quality or even how serviceable it might be. It could be a jewel, could be crap.

Wow, very kind offer, thanks, but I want to get this thing on the road today and all I need is the BB, so I guess I'll head over to Cyclepath for one of those cheap jobbies. Thanks guys.

Er, wait, my route to Cyclepath is through little Portugal, is the game over yet? If Portugal wins this thing, the entire city is going to be nuts for the rest of the week. Might be kinda cool, now that I think about it

It won't be.. trust me. Unless you enjoy riding through a crowded street with drunken peds everywhere, every car blaring its horn, and others being safety conscious and doing burnouts in the middle of the street.

I thought I was going to die on my way home after their first win.

Not to mention getting hit by every single flag being waved from their car. Isn't that illegal somehow?

I just find it encouraging that people have to drive around in their cars to celebrate. Screw waving a flag on foot when you can do it in style!

I almost got run over by some drunk korean guys waving flags in a rice rocket on bloor after S. Korea tied that one match. I got forced into the curb and had to kind of bail after I got pedal strike. Then they crossed bathurst and a cop car turned on his sirens and pulled them over. I doubt that the police will be able to monitor the italians and portuguese as well though so its going to be dicey the next few nights. I can tell that markham st. is going to be parked on both sides and that its going to be chocked full of portuguese flag cars going south while I try to battle my way north. Ah well, at least france is up 1-0 at the 60 minute mark...
