    External BB's were a huge leap. Way stiffer and for me at least it was greatly appreciated. BB30 and PF30 are horrible.

    You have to go with a PF-30 standard BB if the frame is a PF-30 frame. There are threaded options for PF30 though that are kind of the bees knees, but more hassle or expense than they may be worth...

    I only found 1 reference to it. In a 1993 small parts catalog. There's the tech doc but all you're going to get from that is the PCD that is listed as 45mm

    They are all pretty much the same. You could most likely use the oldest setup you could find as long as it's 8 speed. It won't change the spokes appreciably. Good thread for reference:

    She wasn't getting home last night I don't think. Molly Cameron put out a rescue all from the airport last night. My shop is about 20-30 minutes from ORD with traffic. It was nasty here last night.
