Hmmm, knowing Charlottenburg I'd have to know exactly what she was doing with it first. Sadly, being persona non grata on the place she hangs out I can't ask.robgul said:Chuffy - I recollect that Charlotte was waxing lyrical about a threadless BB a while ago as being the answers to her prayers ... (well, you know what I mean) - she may have some comments
By the power of my legs. Possibly. Either that or the power of mongo when reassembling it.littlestwoo said:Hi Chuffy,
How has the thread become stripped?
He am steel. The chaps at the LBS have done their best to re-cut the threads but they're too far gone.It is possible to restore the thread in your BB, what is the frame made of?
Ain't no frame builders near here. Nearest would probably be SJS or Argos. Replacing the BB shell with Argos would be the thick end of £100. I'm going to go with the threadless solution for the moment, the BB is about £13 so if it doesn't work then I won't have lost much. At the moment I don't really have the time or contacts to pursue the other options, although they may prove more effective in the long run. I'll certainly bear them in mind, Cheers for the advice, not a solution I've ever heard of before.I don't think that the BB shell needs to be replaced, have you asked a frame builder about thread restoration? Probably a safer bet than the LBS anyway.
