Shimano BB with Campag crank???


Mongoose!

Please know it sounds silly but is for a single speed (raod) project.

 

Can get a Campagnolo square BB crank at a good price.

 

Can I use my Shimano square BB with it?

 

Just want to know if the square end of the Shimano BB will fit into the square insert of the crank :blush:

 

Know I will commit one of the biggest sins in cycling (to mix campag with shimano) but if it will work, way not :)

But I would go with no. Rather find a Campy BB.

ha ha :D . no - Will run with Shimano Dura Ace intil my budget allow me to get Campag.

Can not afford Record. So will be Chorus 10 speed. Or perhaps the 11 speed Athena carbon...

 

All my wheels are Shimano. Can be converted to Campag, but not sure if it can be converted to accommodate 11 speed.... :unsure:

Dont listen to the "an Italian bike has to have an Italian groupset" crowd... that is just BS.

Ride what YOU like and not what anyone else tells you!
