I posted pics re: a question I posted yesterday. I'm repeating the post as well. Any input would be appreciated.

I'm building up a bike that's using Brampton BB cups.

The fixed cup has two polished annular rings, with a mat-finished area between them that has "Brampton" and "Made in England" on the outside.

The lockring has this on one side, and a plain surface on the other. At first I was going to install the lockring so the printed side would face out, like the fixed cup. However, the 10-tooth outer notches have a bevel that would then slant outwards, which looks wrong.

Anyone have experience with this, or any humble opinions?
