ArgH! So I have literally spent the last *2 hours* breaking apart my bottom bracket.
As you may recall, I have a Bridgestone MB-2 FG/SS which I love a great deal. If you've really been paying attention, you'll recall that I bought it with cranks whose extractor threads are stripped. If you've been stalking me, you'll know that the arms periodically loosen and I've been periodically tightening knowing that it's going to all end badly.
Well tonight it ended badly. I popped the head off the drive side crank arm bolt. The good news is the drive side crank slipped right off. The non-drive side...well, that's a whole different matter. See the first sentence in this post.
Anyhow, the net result is that I have a bottom bracket (UN71, thanks) that has the shaft of a bolt sunk in the drive side spindle and a 110 bcd crankset that I really don't want to put back on a new bottom bracket.
So... I'm looking for some advice here. Anyone got a 110 bcd bottom bracket and crank combo that won't run me too much money but will end me up with a standard mountain bike 52mm chainline. Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?
