General Information
Production of these spindles started in former Czechoslovakia in 1987 and currently they are made in Slovakia. As both cups are removable, they can be replaced with any of following types, all with either BSA or Italian threads:

- plastic for FAG tool
- zinc-coated steel for FAG tool (used on Campagnolo Veloce BB)
- plastic for Shimano splined tool
- aluminium for Shimano tool
- zinc-coated steel for Shimano tool
- zinc-coated steel for Campagnolo tool

I have seen even combinations using different cups (plastic/Al, FAG/Shimano, etc.) and also the combination where the R/H cup had Italian thread when cutting bigger thread was the only way how to save the frame.

There are number of these spindles (with Kinex Slovakia on them) used with Campagnolo cups so I believe KINEX are cooperating with Campagnolo.
