I used a UN72 68x113 bottom bracket for my current bike. The frame I will be buying in the next week or two takes a 73x113, and since I'm building on a budget, I plan on moving over my old Turbine LC cranks until I get around to buying the Deus XC.
The replacement to the UN72 is the UN73, but it has the plastic, well, the plastic other side jobby. I've seen an adapter on eBay that allows you to run a 68mm BB in a frame that requires a 73mm BB, but I'm wondering if the spindle would no longer be centered in the shell. Could I just buy a UN73 and use my UN72 keeper so I don't have that garbage plastic?
