SRAM BB30 Bottom Bracket Assembly $35.00
Bigger is better.
It's hard to argue with lighter, stiffer, smoother ... the BB30 concept is a good one. If you plan on running a SRAM drivetrain on one of the many progressive frame designs with this oversized standard, you'll need the BB30 Bottom Bracket Assembly. The kit comes with two sets of steel bearings and mounting hardware for SRAM cranks and bikes with a BB30 bottom bracket shell.
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
But is quite a pain to get into the shell of course. The trick is putting the bearings in the freezer for a few hours to shrink them to slide in easier then as they heat back up they seat tightly. As far as performance................the system works. Nothing else to say here but if your bearings are worn then replace them. But have the right tools to make it easy.
I have just bought a frame with a BB30...
I have just bought a frame with a BB30 bottom bracket and I am in the process of buying the components to go along with it. I plan on buying a SRAM Force gruppo but I am confused about what bottom bracket I should buy: SRAM PF30, GXP, and/or the BB30 Bottom Bracket Assembly kit?
Go with any SRAM that has BB30 - then your good to go - and will enjoy the solid performance :)
