To put the praxis bottom bracket in, the bb30 shell of my new travel bike needs a good reaming. Anybody knows where there is a bb30 reamer in Japan, from asking around it seems to be a rare item?

Unsuccessfully tried:
-Sekiya
-Bored
-Efffect

Might try next:
-Positivo
-Nalsima
-Rew10
-Kalavinka

BB pic is attached for reference (looks even bigger in person). Equilibrium Cycle Works does not have one yet, because I was the first one wanting one in Japan to do have enough space to do all internal cabling.

Might want to try http://www.avelotokyo.com/ too - the bb30 reaming tool is just an attachment to the Park Tool headtube reamer/facer tool and this shop carried pretty much everything Park Tool related when I last dropped in.

C-Speed Kawasaki. Hiroshi speaks pretty good English and will do a fantastic job of it.

I live practically across the road from Hiroshi and c-speed, but unfortunately no go.

So, I am hope to report that Vlad ordered the bb30 reamer and to my knowledge, http://equilibriumcycleworks.com is the only place in Japan to offer bb30 as an option for your steel or stainless custom frame.
