Essential part of my upgrade

PostedOctober 1, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Looks great
I bought this BB to go with the Shimano 105 Chainset. So much smoother than the stock BB on my Felt Z85 and easy to fit, well worth the investment.

Very good price matched product

PostedFebruary 4, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
I used this BB with my FSA Mega Exo chainset i.e. not Hollowtech II. It is compatible. The BB seems very light and well coated with a sticky luminous green grease. Only time will tell how well it resists the water ingress.

Great replacement and upgrade option!

PostedOctober 21, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
I bought this a replacement and also and upgrade for my worn out Tiagra BB. It spins well, proving to be smooth and stiff allowing for quick spin up of the pedels, which is very welcome when going for a Sprint KOM on a Strava Segment!! Now i just need to upgrade all my other componants to 105.......

Replacement bottom bracket

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Easy to replace old unit with correct tool. Made a big difference to pedalling efficiency as old one was a bit cranky.

Excellent - No Issues

PostedJune 8, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality
Make sure you get the right one. I didn't know my frame was Italian threaded until I spent a good while fighting to undo my RH cup clockwise. Had to return UK one and get Italian one instead. For info to anyone fitting an outboard BB for the first time...From an engineer to anyone reading this, don't worry too much about facing the BB and certainly don't bother with chasing out threads. You should be able to get your threads plenty clean enough with a wire brush and a solvent - paraffin is great. As for facing, set and torque your right bearing then load the crank spindle. Now slide your left bearing onto the crank spindle and see if it lines up with the frame. If it's noticeably out of centre then you'll need to dress the other end with a file slightly - dress the side you want to move the left end away from. You can then do this from the left side the same way - remove the right cup - set & torque the left cup & put the chainset in the wrong side just to check the centre on the right. However, I bet nobody finds more than 0.1mm misalignment - no need to bother with the file!

This is the sort of information I find very helpful. If only everyone could pass on information like this we could all get on better with our upgrades and maintenance.
