Evenin' all,

I was having a look at my Rossin frame last week and i noticed that the edges of the BB shell appear to be tapered/bevelled. A local chap, with greater knowledge than me (easily done), advised that he thought it have been done to accept a Mavic BB but he was not sure.

Any ideas RBer's?

I cannot take pics as the garage is out of bounds as per my post re. storage and i am not sure pics would show much.

Thanks all!!

Didn't the Mavic BB also come with 2 rubber type washers to sit in the bevels to make up for any discrepancy in bevel angle?
