While patiently awaiting the arrival of the new Custom Zombie Engineered: Steering Tubes/Head Tubes, Fork Stems & BB shells, (assemblies?) <which upcoming parts are you planning on having made &/or selling to us prospective Zombie Warrior makers?> hot from the machine shop, would it be possible to get the specís you gave the gnarly machine shop dudeÖ length, diameter, thread pitch, etc. of the BB shells? I was looking at Shimano UN55 square taper, 68mm bottom bracket innards & wondered if it would fit the shell you are having produced?

We are launching the new store tonight! If all goes well, the hub and disc adapter parts used on the LodeRunners, StreetFighter, and KyotoCruiser will be available (we have 100 of them here now). These parts can be used on any of the delta trikes as long as you use a 3/4 axle. Later next month, we hope to have the disc flanges as well.

Head tubes an bottom brackets will come some day as well, but at this point we simply can't afford to order them in the quantities needed.

If we can sell the adapters, then yes. Having 100 of anything made is a huge venture for us, and if it pays for itself, then we will add something new each time we go back to the shop. I did find head tubes and bottom brackets, but to sell them at a reasonable price, we need to make them in quantities of 1000 at a time! At this point, this is way out of our league, but we are formulation a plan.

I don't want to kill a business oportunity. However I want to Save Brad and Kat from un-needed expence. I really needed a bottom bracket tube and found a link from an earlier post in Bottom brackets. And I bought 2 bootom bracket tube from this site: www.cycle-frames.com
They had different sizes and materials including aluminum- Titanium-Stainless-and mild steel for relativily cheap pricing.
They have quite a selection in raw bicycle components such as forks- Tubing including head tubes, Dropouts and other materials.
They do not have any types of adapters. However Brad if you wanted they might consider building and stocking the parts if you decide this is too much for you. I got my BB shells for $5 or 6 each without holes. This is just an FYI- I meant to mention this earlier but kept loosing the link.

...thanks for the link Darnthedog - looks like a great source for these parts. Does anyone know of a similar site in UK? I'm specifically looking for stainless steel bottom bracket and head tubes on my next trip back there. Somebody on here sent me a link a while back, but as I recall it was mainly lugged parts, not really what I was after....

At the bottom of this webpage "http://whiteind.com/fronthubs.html" you can get these: Venti 20mm Thru Axle with built in disk flange, 48 hole hubs for a mere $162.75 each + shipping. I guess the electricity to run those CNC machines is really expensive in California.

You could try http://www.framebuilding.com/NEWPARTSPAGES/Other%20BB%20shells.htm
If you get prices can you post them.

...has anyone used a threadless bottom bracket before? People use them when the threads are stripped on their BB, and seem to do the job OK from what I've read. The two brands are YST and ACOR, maybe others, and they seem cheap enough on ebay. I'm planning to do a stainless steel trike, and SS tubing is easy to come by over here. If I'm lucky tube may be right size already, if not could machine to fit. Might also get lucky with SS tube to make the steering headset. Just a thought...........

I donít want to hurt Bradís business venture but Paragon Machine, http://www.paragonmachineworks.com,
has bottom bracket shells and much more for the builder. I have used and recommend them for their customer service and selection.
