    yeah i know how to use Google and found like 10 diff ones. i just figured 130 people that probably ride more than i do could offer a more educated choice than just having to base my decision on price (maybe there are other factors to be considered IDK )

    google DOES seem beyond the capabilities of many of the posters here at SS/fixed, even though it is probably their homepage. he he.

    great, I was 2 off, and I have a horrible headache...

    Actually, google reveals un52 is the tiagra bottom bracket, strange. Not like the UN54 is so expensive.

    the un54 is a higher quality, better bearings, seals, those types of things. I think I remember that Sheldon Brown said he only sold the 54's, because they were so much better than the rest, and the cost difference was so minor. (Citation Needed)
