Velo Orange French BB - Grand Cru
Finally a sealed-cartridge bottom bracket for your ol' French bike! Before ordering, please make sure that this bb works on your frame. For instance, many old Motobecane frames were actually Swiss threaded. If you find that it is Swiss, then check out our stock of VO threadless bottom brackets.
The best indication of a French bb is having a 35 x 1 notation on the old bb, this has to do with thread pitch. For more information, check out the links below.
