Looking to get a new frame and realising swapping parts isn't as that simple! I'm running an older 90's double chauncey.I've been told by my local bike shop I'll need a English thread 109mm (obviously campag compatible) BB.if anyone had one for sale I'd be very interested, also if anyone had any further ideas on options? Cheers Jon

CHANGED
The want list now a 111mm BB please :-)

This seems unusually short to me, 109 mm was typically for track chainsets. I'm not an expert on this but 111mm was standard campag length in the late eighties/early nineties I think

Thanks I just contacted my friend from the shop who suggested the 109mm, he had now retracted it and said a 111mm will hold it. He did mention an issue the chaucer slipping over time and heading back towards the BB.guess I'll cross this issue when I come to it
