Bottom bracket option

Postby uptheswa » Fri Oct 04, 2013 13:05 pm

All my bikes have standard 68mm threaded bottom bracket shells and I run square taper bb in them all. I am thinking of getting a Power2Max which I would switch between bikes. But before I make a purchase, I was wondering if I have better options than buying a square taper Power2Max.

Any other/better bottom brackets that can be fitted to my frames ?

any hollowtech 2 BB will fit (Shimano, Hope, CK, Acros ...loads of them), as will any threaded GXP BB (Sram, Truvativ).

if you're dropping that much £ on a chainset then you need to ditch the square taper, whatever the die-hard crusties say. HT2 is tons stiffer.

I have a BB30 bottom bracket shell for SRAM chainset, BNIB - (maddog2: will that fit?)
It is brand new and never used, so if its the right one you can have it cheap uptheswa. I will have to root it out of the shed, so give me a day or so.

That's not a BB30 BB. It's a threaded GXP BB. BB30 isn't threaded.
