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)

Miche Primato BB

I took the cups off a miche primato bb to see if they would thread in the shell or if I'd need to face it and didn't pay attention to which side of the bb I pulled them from.

Which side is the right of the bb? The side that has the groove cut in it or the other side?

any stampings on the cartridge should read if you're standing over the bike.

now that I've had more alcohol I can see that the side with the groove matches up with a groove in the right cup, but the stampings would then be reading reversed. wait, no they don't

cheers
