Affordable & reliable BB


Great product, several in use. easy to install, reliable and affordable. why buy a 2nd rate product when these are readily available.

Almost perfect

I bought this BB to fix the irritating creak which my bike has developed. Press - fit is really a poor design for bicycles and I hope one day the bike makers go back to threaded as the norm. This BB is very well made.... all metal and slides straight into the frame, no pressing tool required. The 2 ends thread into each other and you need the special BB tool which MountainBikesDirect sell to tighten it up. The bearings are BRILLIANT and they leave the Shimano press fit BBs for dead! My bike cranks so smoothly with this BB. If need be, you can service these bearings too. Now for the down side...... Not all bikes using the BB92 standard are 100% the same and although this BB may work like a charm in some frames, it isn't quite right in mine. I am still trying to eliminate the creak! I tried to tighten the BB up real hard, still had a creak. Tried more grease, still a creak. I have slipped a little with the tool and scratched the outside of the BB so I can't return it now, but because the bearings are so good I'm still trying other things to resolve the creaking problem. I've removed the BB and re-fitted it using Loctite 609 in yet another attempt to stop the creak. I haven't ridden it since doing this so I cannot confirm if it has worked. In a nutshell...... brilliant BB for smooth and fast turning of the cranks but it has NOT resolved the frame creak.

No more creaking. Simple to install

This fixed my creaking Pressfit BB. Replacing the old BB was very simple. I'm not an expert in BB engineering so I can't really critique the pro's and con's of the standard plastic PFBB to a threaded aluminium one that I replaced it with other than to say it no longer creaks. I was surprised how flimsy the original bottom bracket was. I made a press from bolts and washers and they worked a treat. It took about 30 minutes to install. The value of this BB will come apparent when the bearings next need to be changed.
