99 burley stoker bottom bracket
well I hope I have not painted my self into a corner.
99 burley softride tandem frame I picked up a few weeks ago.
It has the capt bottom bracket and the acentric bearings and two sealed bearings w/a axle stuck thru it.
now the rear is just a open hole burley says that it takes a 6203 bearing and a axle. My question is as long as I get the right length can I simply order a tapered axle and with the bearings put it together
burley says that they no longer have this axle. I have requested the specks to see if something else will work. or maybe take it down to the machine shop and have it turned to speck.
Has any one ever run into this ?
after I get this squared away I can continue on with planing the build. since this will deal with the cranks and spacing ect.
if it is an English threaded bottom bracket shell, you can install any English threaded bottom bracket. Measure the length of the captain's spindle and order a new bottom bracket with the same length.
nope its a pressed bb I have just gotten off the phone with a very nice man at performace tandems and he said it should not be a problem I have also ordered a set sugino cranks w fsa rings. once all of this is conferimed I will post the rest of the set up.
Haven't heard of a peformance tandems before; perhaps you're referring to Mark Johnson at Precision Tandems?
