Bottm Bracket Conversion: YST kit???

So since the Truvativ conversion kit seems to be sold out everywhere except for high rates on eBay, I was about to give up the salvaging of my nearly perfect Schwinn Conti frameset [do not want one piece crank] when I happened upon this:
https://store.citygrounds.com/store/p...onversion-Kit/

Has anyone used it before? I'm having difficulty finding any information about it.

Should be fine - just stay away from their threadless cartridge BB's.
