phil is a lot of moolah. you can still buy shimano un-71 72 73 BBs. fsa makes a lighter model. skf has some light stuff as well.
that's all i ride and pretend to keep riding.

Phil is good. but i am looking to just get a pretty bottom bracket for a Kona that i have. it had a UN 72 or something like that. but i would like something lighter than that. i did see a FSA and SKF listed on a couple sites. but when i clicked on the link there was no info.

Phil for the Fat

cheaper for the Kona
