    Syncros Ti Bottom Bracket Part Needed

    Howdy...

    New to this BB but I've been riding since the early 70's and still love the whole experience... love the dirt but fall too often to go alone
    Getting too old so that hardly any of my old bikie buddies ride at all any more...

    Anyways the reason for this post is to search if anyone out there has the driveside lockring for the old syncros ti bottom bracket.

    TIA

    It should be the same thread pitch as any other bottom bracket. Steal one of of any old 1980's Shimano or SunTour BB and you'll be set.
    Each bicycle owned exponentially increases the probability that none is working correctly.

    Well the problem is that the driveside is left-handed threads... so that's the major issue I'm having.
    I have replaced the non-driveside with a regular steel lockring and it has performed flawlessley for years.
    BTW, the originals were machined aluminum and were prone to breakage (exactly what happened to mine)

    Thanks for the input

    Ah. Good point. I forgot that the lock ring was only on one side.

    I have a spare one for a Specialized BB. Check your PMs.

    It'd be the same as any other driveside lockring, that much of your answer was correct. Its just a matter of finding a BB with dual-adjustable cups to steal the lockring from.

    I may have one, but will have to dig for it. I won't be able to search for it until Sunday, but will post/PM if/when I find it.
