I got one of these ere Hope Ti BB a while back.
Listed as 68mm - I think they can be used in a 73m BB shell too?
Am I right - or am I way of the mark as usual?

Nothing to stop you putting it in, might be harder to use the lockrings.
Not dual they where dual use like others.

That 111 on there really 117 ?
As that the length the lockrings started at, below that you didn't have them.

Hi Fluff
I don't think the lockrings are actually Hope ones - as the blue is different.

The BB shell is actually 73mm wide - and the the axle is 113mm.

So with these - is it right that if you used em on a 68mm shell - you used the lockrings - and if you used it in a 73mm shell you didn't use the rings?

The rings only came on 117+ lengths. I don't think the shell had anything to do with it.

One min..
Here. I've never had one as far as I can remember anyway.

So it looks like I've just found my ideal 73mm BB and saved myself about 100g as well!

All I need now is the tool to fit it with.
Is it the same size as the Royce BBs?
