Default White Brothers BB

I have one of these on one of my Wickeds. Works well, have only replaced bearings once in about 15 years. The only potential downside is the very small hex wrench required to tighten the collar.

Although they are still in business they do not have parts for this BB any longer.

I have used two of these, both Ti spindle and steel. Advantages are that the spindle location can float for chainline adjustment. The bearings are a standard size and can be replaced. If the spindle isn't the right length, it can be replaced with a Phil Wood. They're nicely machined units.
