Hi Guys, Just got some very old stock real designs BBs in and they are ideal for your retro build.

Real Designs were a fine US based company making lovely CNC'd levers, hubs, cranks and these fine bottom brackets. The company are no longer around, but the fact that their bottom brackets are still in daily use is testimony to the quality of their components. I have 107mm or 110mm axles available.

The RRP was £35, and the retrobike dude deal is £15 inc UK postage.

Email me on charlie@charliethebikemonger.com if you want one.

More info available here http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/REAL-bottom-bracket-fixed-singlespeed-square-taper-RARE_W0QQitemZ290095708771QQcategoryZ56193QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem but save money by emailing me instead of buying from ebay.

Cheers, and hope to see you on the weekend near Dorking.

Just got mine and its perfect! really cool design and with that adjustable chainline it can be used as an effective 115mm bb on the drive side, great for some of those retro cranks!

Got mine too - 'tis grand.

Axle length seems to measure up to my old BB so hopefully it'll be alright.
