Testing my 10 year old Orbit Romany yesterday for the tour a week on Tuesday around the Netherlands - the bottom bracket went - badly - threads corroded on the frame!! Lbs are getting one of these bottom brakets that clamps to either side of the frame and hopefully it will be fixed - 1. Has anyoine got one of these - can't say it feels great just before a 500 mile jaunt round Netherlands - do they work ? 2. Am I being unreasaonble to expect a 10 year old bike - c 3000 miles a year to continue to last ? Help?
