to reply to my own post, I just found this website

"This 364 gram (with crank bolts and dust caps, which weigh 50 grams) bottom bracket uses the WTB/Suntour Grease Guard system. In a matter of seconds, you can inject fresh grease into the convenient injection ports which provides superior lubrication for bottom bracket bearings and cups. Dirt and impurities are purged at the same time, to increase the life-span of your new bottom bracket. This bottom bracket uses a cone and cup construction, that includes eleven precision ground 1/4" balls in a retainer, all sealed in a protective cavity. There are holes drilled through the bolts, that hold the crank arms on, and the bottom bracket spindle is hollow. There is a hole, in the position of the bearings, at each end of the spindle. As grease is injected into the spindle bolt using the Wilderness Trails Grease Gun (Gooser), it squirts through the spindle into the bearing compartment. This is a well conceived idea. Rubber seals rest under the crank arm dust cap, so debris won't clog up the spindle hole. The B/B width is 68mm, and the spindle length is 125.5mm. Grease gun, and grease not included (please see Lubricants). English only. "

Now my question: who makes a 125.5 JIS taper? Would I be better off with a 122.5 or a 127?

thanks for any insight!
