Campag Mirage BB
I'm putting together my conversion street fix, finally found a crankset with 165mm cranks, and just need a BB now to complete. Since I'm on a budget, I'm definitely going for an inexpensive cartridge BB, and was more or less set on a Shimano, til I saw Wiggle was selling Campag Mirage BB's for £7.99. This is almost half the price of the cheapest Shimano ones, but here are two questions:
1) Are they any good? Surely some reason they're so damned cheap.
2) How do you fit the things? The lockrings don't look like anything I ever saw, nor do they look like the tool which works with the Record/Chorus bbs.
