Dear Novekili,

I run a similar set to yours, OK for XC. definitely exotic, but not as much as the road cranks or the wheels!... see http://www.mombat.org/Magic_Motorcycle.htm.

If you're serious about remaking the BB, PM me and I can draw up some diagrams and good photos. The BB splines are exclusive to Magic Motorcycle, and the crank bolts are special too, with a left and right hand thread to pull the crank onto the spline.

All the best,

Dan Chambers

About the same time '98 ish trials riding was just breaking into mainstream and martin ashton was of course using a cannondale - anyway these guys were using a concrete seawall to jump off and were smashing the crank arms on the way down - destroyed them instantly (being a lightweight xc crank and not a toughened trials crank) - Up until I saw his Cannondale had replaced about 30 through warranty...

I've read this exact quote before....

Not sure what it has to do with the thread either.... :roll:
