    One more question. Will any square tapered bb work? It will be going on a Vassago Jabberwocky. 68mm shell.

    would you recommend the 113mm or the 121mm for a single speed setup on a Jabberwocky?

    I have to ask because I am not familiar with the Vassago frames.

    Needs to be JIS square taper. WI recommends a 113mm width.
    Phil wood ti is 156g and $150, the steel version is 226g and $106. Compare to a shimano UN54 for $20.

    I definately like the $20 option. Has anyone used the UN54? If so, what did you think?

    113mm with a White hub. Check the chainline first, then buy the bb. My guess is the original poster will need the 121mm.

    If you can find a UN73 that's what I've been using for the past two years, and I bought the bike used. it's still spinning great. I just took it out and checked it out and all looks good.

    Phil is good and blingy, but lots of $$.

    I run the UN54 on my fixed gear and SS. Works fine. Nice and cheap. I usually get about 1 year on mine.

    Been using the UN54 for about a year, no troubles whatsoever (though haven't rode in the wet). Installed first with grease, had some creaking and added teflon tape - problem solved.

    The White Ind. BB looks nice though.

    i run the ENO cranks on my jabber with the UN54 BB. it can be a bit creaky at times, but it spins good.

    for size, 68 x 113 is perfect with my ENO FW. the chain line is perfect...
