There was a time in the 1980s when almost every cyclist had an Avocet cyclometer on his bike. The firm was started in Palo Alto, California in 1976. The first product was the famous "bump" saddle". From there the firm went on to importing Italian Ofmega components under their own brand. It was all good stuff.

Avocet English Cups. New in the box, $50.00/set

Part# 63203

  • Because Ofmega made Avocet BBs and cranks, we know these cups will work on vintage Ofmega bottom brackets as well. We do not know what other bottom brackets these cups would work with.
  • Note: Ofmega/Avocet spindles have a unique taper and they will work only on Avocet/Ofmega cranks and vice-versa.
  • We have four sets of these new cups in the box in stock
