I should have some french threaded BB cups. Axles are the same as ENG threading (but some are different dependning on cup wall thickness). I don't have any actual french ones though. Probably shimano, campagnolo, and maybe zeus... let me know if interested and I can have a look and confirm

Hey Foz,

Thanks, I’ve generally not had a great deal of success swapping axles between brands but I feel it might be my easiest option with this. If you have a 116 ISO axle that will work with some cups that would be swell.

Ta.

OK, will have a look later and see what I can find. what chainset is it for? If I remember right, I mixed and matched shimano cups and a campag spindle on my nortelle and i works fine...

I've found some thin wall campagnolo cups and lockring in 35x1 thread, reasonable condition. No spindle yet though. Does Mavic take Shimano or campagnolo type?

No worries, I’m not sure I can make it work with the available axles for thin cups anyway. Think I may bite the bullet and get the rather fancy one I’ve seen but thanks a lot for looking!

Ok, I had the same problem when I built my Nortel.le, ended up with Shimano cups and a campag spindle, c record chainset. Bike isn't used much if at all so I'm not too worried. If it was for using lots I'd find a sealed unit, or a threadless type
