Stripped bottom bracket

The threads are toast on the non-drive side. I had the threads tapeed but to no avail and now I am looking for options. I know there are threadless bottom brackets to fix this problem and was wondering if they work well. I was also wondering if there are any for splined (raceface cranks) bottom brackets.

Any help, ideas are welcome.

I seem to be finding only square taper bottom brackets like this: http://www.ebikestop.com/pyramid_68x...less-20959.php

I have no experience using these though.

You could also try a product like this (Loctite thread restorer): http://www.henkelna.com/cps/rde/xchg...UID=0000000I5Y

If the frame is really valuable, you could also investigate having a machine shop weld in some material then remachine the ID and retap the bottom bracket.
