bit over budget but i was very impressed with this saddle

or the common answer would be charge spoon - also highly rated!
Depends on if you wanted something period correct or road style etc.

As far as parts go - maybe some old campag parts or some shimano 105 would be suitable.
We do have a retro road section
Welcome :wink:

Most likely there are parts available
Depends on what your after though
I believe your in the right place

As you dont see the bb (and if your not massively fussed on keeping it period) maybe you could go to a more modern sealed unit for ease and availability - although i dont think spares will be a problem

Presuming its a square taper

Ok cheers, the BB is proabably the one part on a bike i have least amount of knowledge, with a very rough rough estimate what cost am i looking to replace it? At the moment i can feel all my pedal strokes are not being fully transfered into power! annoying

Thanks

Well spares prices are subjective, have a look in the road for sale section

Otherwise sealed units are cheap enough
Even buying the tool and doing it yourself is pretty cheap

If you know the length and shell size you need
http://www.coventrycyclecentre.co.uk/m11b92s204p2273/RALEIGH_Outland_El_Rey_Lt_2010/RS_GB

Failing that being the right size
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=34652

or
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=17473

Tool
http://www.wiggle.co.uk/cyclus-bottom-bracket-tool-shimano/?dest=1&curr=gbp&lang=en&utm_source=google&utm_medium=base&utm_campaign=products

BUT, its an old road bike, so it may have different threads to that of the most common ones. Of which i cant be sure as thats as far as my knowledge goes :wink:
