Does anyone know of any shops in the London area that can chamfer face a bottom bracket shell to accept a Mavic BB?
ooh dear, now that IS a challenge! Always ready to have a go with Mr Dremel..... :-)
Try Brixton. I think they have an ancient tool that engages with bb shell pilots and does a nice job. Give them an email and see if they still have it, and what they would charge.
Got the tools, but could never do that to a frame.
And I appreciate MAVIC as much as you do.
Tell me more...
As far as i understood from reading up on the subject the beveling only takes out the first 2-3 turns of thread from the shell and that you can still go back to a conventional bottom bracket if one so wishes.
I have a very nice 631 second series chainset in my long length and would prefer to use a Mavic 114mm BB. I've seen a few cracked Mavic cranks which i suspect is due to people using the wrong tapers.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
