73mm BB + Shamano 6500 = Impossible??
I ended up picking up some 6500's for when I get ready to update my Bridgestone (don't worry, it's nothing special). It's a cottered crank, so I want to move to something new. The 53-t gear is also pancaked against a guard and I can't seem to get it off. It causes chain derailing pretty easy also. Big problem is, I can't seem to find a 73mm Octalink BB in V1?? I referenced and did not see a single thing indicating that it even exists. Anyone out there happen to have matter-of-fact knowledge about this??
