I'm looking for a replacement English Campag BB for my Concorde.

Is there an easy way to check if it is a English bb??

I have quite a few bb's and a couple of them are campag.

Might be an idea to say which campag chainset you're going to use it with too. The lengths can very.

^ taylorsummers:

1. Stamped on the axle: 70=IT, 68=Eng

2. Cups. Both RH threads = IT; LH thread on drive-side = Eng

However, as pointed out above, different Campag chainsets need different length axles. At least some old ones are listed on

I've got an English thread, 68mm shell, 111mm axle (double chainset), veloce BB from around 2000 here you're welcome to for free if you pay post and packing but I must warn you it is rough and only really suitable for a hack bike not a beautiful restoration, probably not worthy of a concorde frame and I would only give it away on agreement that you bought the fitting tool from me for a fiver.

BB - free
Cyclo fitting tool - £5
P&P - approx - £5

If you don't mind using some thing new and non-campag, Miche and Tifosi do some very nice BBs that work well with campag for much less money.

What chainset/cranks are you using as that is vital when selecting a BB
