I'm moving my components from a early 90's Concorde Aquila that I bought used to a specialized s
works m4. I believe the crank is record. Its 8 speed.

I think i have most things figured out, but still investigating the bottom bracket. Do I need a new
one, or can i just replace the cups? If I need a new one, do I need the 115 symetrical version?

Txs,

Tom

Can't really help with your question, but I have a question for you. I also have a Concorde Aquila,
got mine in 1994 and built it up with a 1995 Chorus 8sp group. Mine took a 102mm BB. What frame
tubing is used on your frame, mine is full Columbus TSX. I like mine alot, what did you think of
yours? Jeff

Loved it until I drove my car into the carport with it on top. At least it was the first time...

Doubt cups are available if the BB is one of the early cart bearing ones and if cup and ball,
spinlde is a different dimension, ITL(Concorde) to the Specialized.

You need a Campagnolo 111mm spinlde BB-like an AC-H-about $25. NOT the 115mm one-

Hey Tom,
wondering if you are looking to get rid of the Concorde frame and if so what the size/geometry is?

Many thanks Andy
