    FWIW, I put a Shimano UN26 bb, 68-122.5 on my Fuji S12S. I put a 2.5mm spacer under the drive side, then reinstalled the Fuji pantographed triple crankset that came with the bike. Spacing looked...

    While the part out value OJ mentioned is definitely there (well north of $400), as is complete, in a local market, $300. Add for a hot market. Local buyers have no imagination.

    Picked up this Alan last night. Mostly Campy C Record, except derailleur and crankset. Too good to pass up. Why it lasted over a day on C/L is beyond me.
