New Hope bottom bracket, choice of stainless or ceramic bearings.

* The external bottom bracket is available with two different bearing options.
* All common systems are covered with this upgrade unit - making it ideal for Shimano, Race Face, FSA and others.
* The machined aluminium cups hold either full stainless steel cartridge bearings, or ceramic bearings in stainless races.
* These custom, Swiss made bearings are double sealed, fully serviceable and removable which give much greater life span than stock units.
* The bearings are made (as all our bearings are) by INA and have been designed to run directly on the crankset axle, without the use of shims or spacers - again increasing life and reliability.
* We use a non contact, free running labyrinth seal to protect the bearing externally, and the machined aluminium centre tube is sealed internally with o-rings.
* The unit is suitable for 68 & 73mm shell width’s.
* Standard 6 colours are available on cups - red, blue, silver, black, gold and gunmetal, with the centre tubes being black on the stainless and gunsmoke on the ceramic.
* The ceramic weighs 109g and the stainless 113g

(this deal is for cheaper stainless ver)

** Price will update at checkout (until midnight today!) **

ceramic works out at £74.65, that's probably a good deal too.

p.s. these are probably the best bottom brackets available, and made in the UK too
will outlast most in bad conditions (like over winter) by far, because they don't rust, and they run the cranks straight on the bearings (no plastic crap).

edit: just so i don't sound like a fanboy, the plastic spacers Hope give you (unless changed since i got mine) are plastic crap and should not be used. i nearly ruined my new frame because they are flexible and come loose. get some metal spacer rings.
