Velo Orange Grand Cru Threadless Bottom Bracket Dec 7, 2009

nice ‘colorway’

Remember those threadless bottom brackets I posted about earlier? Well, Velo Orange just got some in. Now you can take your Gitane or Lejune, pop one of these inexpensive babies into it and put on any JIS-taper crank.

As long as your cranks are JIS taper, these will work without modifying your BB shell. Really rad idea. Read all the information here, at the VO blog.

Pick one up here.

And before there’s more confusion, VO did not develop this. To quote Chris directly: “Just to be clear, we did not “come up with” or design this. A company engineer showed us the prototype and we loved it.”
