Hi Steve,

Harris Cyclery has complete French bottom brackets and cup sets

They also have Swiss bottom brackets (35 mm x 1 mm like French, but with a left-hand fixed cup) if that's what the Mondia needs.

If you'd consider something less original, Phil Wood has French and Swiss rings for their bottom brackets.

Sheldon advises against using an English cup in a French BB.
