Default Another BB option

This arrived at Velo-orange today. Looks pretty slick if you're going with newer lo-pro cranks.

Hello all:

It's not in stock actually....


This is the first prototype Bottom Bracket. We still haven't finished testing, decided on spindle lengths, BB widths, etc. It's still a fair bit off. we may see it in December.

Another of the Fat pressed bearing BB bike owners here (and a Klein, for that matter)--- neat to see if this pans out as an option!

It does pretty clearly say that only a sample arrived in the linked blog post. Sorry if my posting here created a flood of inquiries !

So there you go Tom - the internet has spoken - you might want to consider a longer spindle length for Klein/Fat owners.

(As an aside - I've bought a bunch of stuff from Velo-Orange and find them great to deal with. Mmmmmmm... polished Sugino cranks...).
