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)

Where to find a replacement for this bottom bracket?

I'd like to replace the bottom bracket on my bike, it's a cup and cone style bracket from the 70s (the ends are spindled).

I'm looking to replace it with a bottom bracket that has square-tapered ends. Any ideas as to where I should be looking (other than eBay)?

http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedi...om_bracket.jpg That's what my bottom bracket looks like currently (aside from the different style ends)

Danke.

you need to know what kind of frame you have first before you can buy a bottom bracket.

It's a Japanese Vista steel lugged road frame. Originally a 10sp I believe, that's all the information I have on it.

It's probably English threading, meaning any generic Shimano UN-*7 cartridge BB will work fine.
