I bought a raleigh grand prix frame on ebay and made it into a single speed. bill, at my LBS, rebuilt the old bottom bracket using new bearings,i believe because he didn'thave the right sealed cartridge available. i would like to put in a sealed cartridge, and get off the old cottered cranks. can't seem to find any info online,[sheldon brown,fixed gear gallery], to know exactly what BB to buy. my frame was made for raleigh by gazelle in holland,[late 70's,i think]. serial number on BB is2966486. i can't find any info on that, either. bottom bracket is 68mm, 24 T.P.I., NOT 26 tpi like nottingham-built raleighs.
