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)

bottom brackets < 107mm

I'm looking for english threaded bottom brackets with a spindle smaller than 107mm. Phil Wood makes them but financial aid can only cover so many purchases. So who else makes them? And would my old Sugino cranks work with bb's dubbed "compact?"

Campy record and chorus are 102mm. They tend to go cheap-ish secondhand on ebay.
I've used Sugino GT's with a shimano 107mm.

Shimano made a Dura Ace BB-7410 in 103mm. They're getting hard to come by though. I've seen Ritchey Logic BB's in 103mm on Ebay too.
