Where to order LHT BB???

I'm looking for a 68x118 un73, un53, or even a un52 at this point. I've tried jenson, performance, nashbar, cambria, aebike, ebay, greenfish, probikekit....and haven't found one yet. Where are you guys finding this bottom bracket online??

Becuase Shimano isn't making it any more....or darn few of them. And if you find one, you might have to pay top end prices to get it.

Go to the FSA website. Full Speed Ahead make great BBs. Pick your model, froogle it. These are nice parts.

What headset are you going with? FSA is a great choice for that as well.

I used a 68 x 113 they are available in any bike shop. I actually have a 118 FSA mega quad I was going to use on my LHT, but I ended up with the 113 for a better chain line. Its brand new if you want it I would sell it cheap as I have no use for it - PM me if are interested.

I can find the 113 pretty easily online. I was thinking it would be too short though? What crank are you using with it? Plenty of clearance?

What about the 68x115...I have a line on one of those and I've seen several guys here use them on the LHT.

Nashbar Trekking crank (I really like it) and a 105 front der - works perfectly with a 113.
