Looking for Columbus MAX BB shell
Anyone know where I can find a Columbus MAX BB shell? Tried the usual places (Ceeway, Nova, Bringheli) but no luck.

have the tube set already?

For the cast BB shells, did you shop the tube Outside diameters ? for the fit into the shell .

The only ones I've seen recently are being sold as part of a complete tubeset at $1,000 or more. I think you'll be very lucky to find one available by itself, and even then it'll be pricey.

If you've already got the tubeset, you might just use a generic BB shell and either fillet braze or TIG weld the tubes to it.

I have the tubeset, the other lugs and fork crown. Just missing the BB shell. Doing a fillet BB is my last resort as it would be nice to do it all lugged. Oh search continues!
