You'll never know until you look. One of my favourite jobs on a bike. Doesn't take a lot of time either.

I got a '90 Palisades that I have just stripped, identical frame and yes its a cup and cone - let me know what your gonna fit, as i would rather have a maintenance free BB.

P.S I love the colours do you know the names as I want to get away from the dull gray / luminous green forks n bars...

If my build looks 20% as good as yours i will be well chuffed.

Thanks for the eye candy

^When I can find an almost new/NOS UN55, that's what i'll be fitting.

There's a 138mm in there now but it's too long for the m730 XT cranks. 10-15mm shorter will do the trick I think.
