Hello, I'ev posted this in the want section but it's probably no the right place so...
I'm currently doing up a 95 Marin Eldridge Grade I've got a cheap UN26 BB (68 x 110) from Ebay but the left side plastic cup is kanckered. Does anyonw know where I could get one from (metal or plastic). I've tried the metal one from a UN52 but it wont fit over it.

Thanks
Gareth

maybe try a local bike shop? see if they have a spare knocking about in the workshop?
It would probably be just as cheap to buy another bottom bracket though, they're not expensive, and you would still be able to keep the BB itself for future use.
In my experience though you're better off getting a BB with metal cups, the plastic ones always become brittle with age and often crumble or strip when you try and remove them.
