Default Looking for new bottom bracket for my Wicked

Hello!

A bit of help needed....

I managed to get hold of a black Wicked frame (# 13099W) with siezed in and worn press fit bearings. Soaked and removed, these are marked on the red seals NTN s00228lu and there is a retaining c-clip on each side of the BB shell and the shell itself seems to be only 63mm wide which seems bizarre.

I know this topic has been covered in older threads but wondered if there are any UK specific up to date options for replacing the BB without spending a fortune.

I am really excited to build up my first Fat Chance and may start selling other bikes and bits to finance.

Thanks for your eyes and minds!

Default Press fit bearings

There was a UK seller on Retrobike a few months back offering these but you can get them easily here.

Thanks for this!

Very useful but do you know:

-if the internal diameter suits the original spindle which i have

-do i also need to source or fabricate the locking collars that prevent the axle drifting left or right when riding.

Cheerz!

It should do. I bought bearings from that seller and had no issues. Type 'Axle locking collar' into ebay search and plenty of results pop up. Plenty of threads on making or modifying them.
