How do many of you keep an Italian thread fixed cup with right hand threads tight in the BB? Does the difference between loose bearings and caged bearings make a difference. Is it unheard of to switch the cups to the opposite sides with the lock ring on the crank side. When did Sugino start making Italian thread cups? Is right hand threads common on fixed cup side for Italian threads? My Fiorelli is the same as my Lambert.
