Another nice thing about the Phil is that there's no fixed cup or retainer (at least there wasn't years ago) ... the BB unit is held by floating retainers on either side allowing the whole assembly to move side to side. This not allows you to adjust for a perfect chainline with different brand cranks (any that share the same taper of course) but one can even use the same BB to swap between a double or triple (I did this for years on my PX-10 and it worked great).

Just call Phil Wood. Their just plain ol' the best.
