Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Odd bottom bracket size

I finally built up my track bike over the weekend, recycling many parts from my Motobecane conversion.

I needed to get a new bottom bracket though, and at the LBS, dude tells me that its a 65mm?? We fit a 68mm in there, kinda sticking out on the left side, so its working now.

But has anyone heard of a 65mm bottom bracket?? I'd like to use the right size if I can, but I can't find any info...

The problem is that it's some obscure track/club bike from Australia, apparently...
