Velo Orange Grand Cru Cartridge Bottom Bracket 110mm Threadless
Internally expanding design fits most frames, including those with Swiss threading and frames with damaged BB shells. Installation requires only a traditional-style BB spanner or a pin wrench. The BB shell does not require chamfering or facing and the unit is easily removed so the existing threads may be reused. Sealed cartridge bearings for long service life. JIS spindle taper. Due to the larger diameter BB shell, Italian threaded bottom brackets are not compatible. Boron steel hollow axle.

  • Chromoly spindle, sealed cartridge bearings
  • Threadless version work well in English, French, Swiss shells as well as bottom bracket shells with damaged threads with no facing required (does not work in Italian shells)
  • Threadless versions expand to tighten into the bottom bracket shell without damaging threads; once removed the original threads can be reused
  • English and French models use Shimano-spline installation tool; threadlessuse standard bottom bracket spanner and pin spanner
  • Can be used on traditional threaded bottom bracket bikes with damaged BB threads (except Italian) but use of the Velo Orange threadless BB unit does not alter the existing BB shell's threads

    Other Thoughts

    Replaced an old Swiss Thread BB on an '80's Motobecane. Worked perfectly. No noise, very smooth.

    StarStarStarStarStar Great option for weird or damaged threads

    Product: Velo Orange Grand Cru Cartridge Bottom Bracket 110mm Threadless
    Ownership: a few months
    Tech Knowledge: high


    Simple install with few preconditions.


    Hard to predict actual chainline as cartridge might not fully seat into bottom bracket shell. This is probably less likely with a predictable 68mm bottom bracket. Cups are really not designed for multiple install / removal; I rounded out some notches in re-install to adjust chainline.

    Other Thoughts

    Be sure to see the install instructions at VeloOrange. You want to seat the cartridge in the drive side by using the non-drive side cup to pull it into place. Then reinstall the NDS cup with the tightening shim.
