please invent a bb spindle with a replacable head. while your at it, please invent and market an internally geared fixed hub that switches between freewheeling and fixed. ooh ooh, or invent an internally geared bottom bracket that works for fixed gear.

No. Just buy the correct bottom bracket.

  1. Take one freehub.
  2. Place under high-pressure wash.
  3. Hang to dry for one week.
  4. Lace and mount hub to wheel.

Where's my check?

Back to the original question... You might want to check out: https://www.thethirdhand.com/. If anybody sells or knows of such an adapter, it'd be these guys. The guys offer some pretty esoteric parts. They're located in your neck of the woods - Ashland, OR.

No you don't. That sounds like a nice old frame deserving of parts that are appropriate to it's era, not some jerry rigged BS

For the love of god, please don't do it! Next you'll be wanting to put an integrated headset in that frame...

seriously, though. I think you're hosed.

I know Phil makes French 'cups', and I've heard you can put a UN72 between them. They might even fit the important part of your ISIS.

Then again, they might not.

This is do-able, but not in the way that you imagined it. You need a cartridge ISIS BB where you can remove both cups (just about anything from China should come apart in this way). Now, purchase retaining rings for a cartridge bottom bracket from Phil Wood of San Jose, CA. That way, you can mount your ISIS bottom bracket in a french-threaded frame. Problem solved!

Jesus, the last post in this thread before you decided to grace it with your presence was in May...of '05. I'm pretty sure the OP has sorted out the problem, won the lottery, or died.

Three holy grails of bikedom- A universally comfortable saddle that weighs what it needs to, chain lube that won't wash off or get grimy, and an air filled tire that can't go flat and still rides well. Andy
