Upgrade your ride

Some wisenheimer will eventually ask us, "What’s the difference between the XT and XTR bottom bracket?" The answer is very little. We don’t have the means to measure the polish or super-polished races, the good or great ball bearings, or the PSI required to push water past the seals. The XTR cups are black, XT’s are silver.

The Shimano XT Hollowtech II bottom bracket works with shells that are 68mm and 73mm and can replace any Shimano 50mm chainline bb. That includes all of Shimano’s MTB line, save cranks designed to work with the 150mm Saint rear hub.

Great BB Great price

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very very good bottom bracket for the price, all of my lower end builds for customers, this is the BB that I use, does a great job of what exactly it is supposed to!

Lasts forever

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Super durable, bearings spin smooth, threaded interface is the simplest to deal with maintenance wise. Matched up to my XT crank, works like a charm.

Lasts and lasts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

And doesn't cost you an arm and a leg to replace when it finally goes. Wish there were a PF30 model available, but Shimano's not generally known for jumping on the latest trends.
