    Puch Bottom Bracket type?

    I'm setting up a Puch Mixte frame as my Girl's commute (fixed) - And I need to get a new bottom bracket.

    Unfortunately, I have to take it to the local co-op to take it apart - but I'd love to have a new bottom bracket ready to go when I do. Anybody know what type they take?

    English, French, Italian???

    Thx.

    Most I have seen have been English, but I could see them possibly having some models with Swiss BB's. Hopefully not the case on yours!

    Looks like I'll have to take it apart first to find out.

    Just to finish this thread...

    The Puch in question is Officially English (I.S.O.) Threaded

    (for anyone doing a search... it's got a PUCH headbadge, lugged mixte frame, model name: Meteor Luxe)

    Cartridge BB and Sugino RD cranks going on.
    Thanks everyone!
