I want to change from a fixed cup BB to a campagnolo sealed BB. My current set up is a fixed cup square taper with axle length of 111mm using chorus first gen. Chainset. The recent campagnolo sealed square taper BB have an axle length of 102mm. Does anyone know if this will work without the left crank hitting the chainstay. Frame is 653. Any help greatly appreciated.

I would go for the Campagnolo Centaur one from Chain Reaction.

There are 2 types of 111 mm campagnolo bottom bracket, one is normal and will work with the older C Record and Chorus sets, the other is for the Record triple, and is asymmetrical.

I've no reason to doubt the Tifosi one Nob has mentioned, but I have had problems with aftermarket 111 mm ISO bottom brackets not being right for Campagnolo doubles. I don't recall the make of the offending item. The Doctor D chap on Facebook had the exact same problem.

The Centaur ones are very good quality.

I have a Tifosi in 70mm Italian fitted to my Basso which runs all Campag.

It is the second one as I didn't do the first one up tight enough. :facepalm:
