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)

70x110 JIS bottom bracket??

I can't find one of these anywhere. Is it possible that they don't make a square taper JIS that's italian threaded? Seems odd to me.

My problem is that I'm looking at a sugino RD or soma Hellyer crankset, both of which are JIS and recommend a 110mm bb. My frame is Italian threaded...

So I need a 70x110mm JIS bb and I can't find one anywhere! Am I going to need to buy 2 BB's and frankenstein them?
