Threadless bottom bracket
Morning all, riding back from work yesterday on the old woodrup, noticed some bottom bracket noise, did the last mile gently and sure enough found that the non drive side shell was loose, tried to tighten but the thread in the frame is buggered, spoke to a bike mechanic friend who suggested either argos doing a frame repair which is probably quite an expensive job, sweating off the lug, new bb shell, re braise and then paint or to try a threadless bb , anybody got any experience of these? There are 3 different ones on fleabay, guessing the bearings are not the greatest and doing a bit of internet searching the velo orange one seems to be the best available , Sheldon b. mentions it, but I can't help feeling a bit sceptical. Experience with these? Many thanks.
