Evening all

Does anyone know if you can get Octalink compatible threadless bottom brackets - I've been looking around and can only find square taper.

Thank you very much!

    Never seen one - Octalink is a proprietary Shimano design and don't think they licensed it to anyone else. Still plenty of cheap square taper cranks about though so you're not completely stuffed.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..

    Cool - cheers Monty: I was only looking for Octalink as I want to throw some carbon cranks on a frame I was generously given and I can't find any carbon square taper but can find loads of cheap carbon Octalink (carbon cranks for the look more than anything else as its going to the winter bike).

    I'll search on for carbon square taper or anything seriously cool in square taper.

    Thank you very much again.
