Does anyone in the east midlands area have the tools to thread a bottom bracket. I am restoring a frame where the bottom bracket was stuck. Before I build it back up again I'd like to run a tap through the threads to avoid any future problems.

Else does anyone know a decent (preferably cheap) shop in the area that could do this?

Talk to Freewheel in Hockley. I've always found them helpful.

Dont think it's that much, just give Tris a phone on 01159726335, and say Rich Morgan recommended them to you.
