Phil Wood ISO BB and tool 68mm x 125mm

Phil wood bottom bracket and tool for ISO taper triple cranks (Campy, Stronglight, TA, etc.) Has english threaded cups and is made for a 68mm BB shell. Has a scrape on the shell but that doesn't affect performance. $80 shipped.

Ugh. I just ordered the tool from Rivendell.

Apart from that, how's the BB spin? I've got one I bought here in the FS thread, but it feels kinda stiff, like a common Shimano UN cheapie unit. A little disappointing, as I though these things are supposed to crazy slick, like the wheel hubs are.

I could do a discount and keep the tool say $70 shipped. It spins really smooth, much nicer than a shimano unit.

I have two used Phil BB’s and one Shimano UN-55 out of bikes and just compared their feel. All are very smooth, with small variations in “viscosity”. I’ve never had a BB that felt slick, including two new SKF’s.

BTW, all three measure 12.70mm across the flats at the outer end, so that makes them J.I.S., correct?

That's what I was wondering about; whether or not the BBs are supposed to feel as free and effortless as the hubs. The Phil hubs I have all feel 'slick.'

Going through my bottom brackets drawer, I've got a UN-55, a UN-52 and UN-something (damaged label) along with my Phil BB. The Phil is about mid-pack on effort required to turn. (These are all used units, obviously.)

Maybe I just feel like it is smoother when I'm riding a Phil BB. Kind of like how my Paul brakes feel like they are stopping me better.

I have a pair of Phil BB tools that I’d be willing to loan out for round trip postage, unless someone buys either of my 118mm Phil’s, in which case they’ll go along.

Well Caveman, I have a Phil tool and I'm probably about one mile away from you as the crow flies. You may want to come over sometime and have a good look at what I have tool wise. On the other hand, I LOVE TOOLS and any excuse to buy them. Perhaps you too?!?

Ha. I should have known.

I think I should stop by your shop and just hang out for couple hours to soak it all in. Maybe take inventory. If I was retired, you'd get sick of me pretty fast, I think.
