Subject: [CR]Re: Oversize BB Cups

I had a similar problem when building up my Heron. I couldn't get a Record thin fixed cup all the way in. I gave up after the wrench slipped and scratched the chainstay. A Nuovo Record thick cup BB went in with no trouble. BTW, the thin cup is marked 1.370. I think that it's a tolerance thing. The Campy cups were a bit oversize, Riv BB undersized. Or it might be that the BB shell needs to be chased and faced. Neither cup set had any trouble on my Taylor.
