I have a 96 Lemond Zurich with 8 spd Ultegra double. Does anyone know what bottom bracket size I need?

Rhog:

Suggest that you go to the Lemond site and email the tech. I have received a tech response within 2-8 hours. Bob

It'll almost certainly be an English-threaded BB. If you're talking 600/Ultegra, then you need a spindle of about 115mm. I *think* 113 will do as well. 115 looks a little wide, but that's because of the way Shimano made the 8-speed cranks. Anyway, your LBS should be able to verify this and order a UN72 for you...
