Only problem with this argument, is that french bb fixed-cup threads are right hand threaded, not left......as the english are. Neill Currie

<<<<<<<<<It might be that you pulled out a tight-fitting French cup and then "cleaned up" the shell with an English tap. At that point it would stand to reason the the new, English cup would fit, while the original French cup would not. The English cup is 1.370" in diameter with 24 tpi. The French cup is 35mm with 1mm thread pitch. >>>>>>>>>>>
