As above - I bought some Middleburns for a knock down price and it will be nice to have a british BB to suit.. What's out there?

Perhaps should have mentioned that :facepalm:

68mm shell, English thread and anything around 113mm should be just smashing squire..

I have a never used Royce 113mm BB axle complete with bearings & cups, plus two spare cups and fitting tool.... well over £200 worth at RRP. But I'm probably never going to use it so I'd sell for £100 + postage

Your in luck Mynchi!

113/68... ti spindle and smoother than a greased Seal!

Had a look around and there was one is a slightly less ubiquitous size on here for £45 posted - That any good?

I also need to get it out it's current frame! which will mean a trip to LBS as I don't have the hope tool...

Let me know... happy either way! :D

the Royce is probably a little too rich for me, nice as it sounds...but the Hope sounds perfecto! I'll ping a PM over in a minute...
