Good Evening,

Sure is nice to have the list back up and running.....THANKS Dale !

I'd like to appeal to the groups collective experience about a bottom bracket question.

I was rummaging about in my friends parts bin today looking for a replacement Campagnolo Pista BB spindle to replace the one that's just about worn out on my Hetchins fixie. I came across one that read "con sphere da 3/16". I know that it needs 3/16 balls but the question is (finally) will the corresponding cups also be marked with 3/16? If so, has anyone ever seen these for sale anywhere?

I'll probably have better luck hunting down a "normal" 1/4 in. 68 - P - 120 spindle but I though it would be rather fun to have a BB that's a bit different.

Thanks for the help,
