A search of the archives turns up plenty of stuff on the frame saver chamfered cup Mavic BB, but nothing on this specific question.

What is the proper bb for the 1st gen Mavic Cranks? The ones that are semi Campy clones, taking 144mm chainrings. Did Mavic go all the way Campy, and adopt the Campy BB taper specs and offset measurements? Or did Mavic use the french TA, Stronglight measurements? Or did they really go wild and use something else?

Thanks in advance.
