make sure you don't use a JIS taper BB when you find one.

ah, thanks! i didn't know mavics weren't jis.
are they iso? or are they using a their own taper?
i was gonna use a mavic bb with it anyway. but the former owner of the bike the crank came on was using a jis bb.
that could explain the crack …

yup ISO Taper and it is indeed why its cracked. Mavic BB's are superb. and you may just want to buy a full crank set now, as the drive side is also compromised, crack wise!
