Mavic bottom bracket facing

Posted on
  • 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.
