    You might struggle as these were not imported into the UK as an aftermarket product.

    I have phoned my 4 nearest LBS no joy, or CRC or any of my usual on line!

    Jim,

    I'll have a look when I get home if you want. Bought a new bike last week and swapped a load of bits from the old one over and am needing to sell what I took off.

    Definately Octalink and 73 wide, but i'll have to check axle length if you're interested. Only ever ridden round the carpark when trying the bike for size.

    Email in profile if interested.

    go here;

    Madison for the BB

    when you click 'where to buy' it'll sort out getting it delivered to an LBS near you. Not sure how long it'll take…

    Yep looked at maddison but not an E Type.
    If yours is Slackmann I would be very interested.

    I believe E type is needed to accomodate the e type front meck

    Are you 100% sure it's 126mm? That either gives you a very large chain line, or you're not using Shimano cranks?

    If you have sufficient clearance between your chainrings and chain stay, you'll be able to run a more narrow BB without issue, just have to tweak your front der.
