Found 17th Mar
A niche product so may only appeal to a few but I’ve just bought one so thought I’d give HUKD members a heads up. Dropped in price at both Chain Reaction Cycles and Wiggle (think they’re the same company). One of the best, durable bottoms brackets available at a decent price. Available at time of posting in both 68/73mm (most common size) and 83mm sizes. Just to add - this is for a mountain bike and not compatible with a road bike.

Same price on sister company wiggle if you prefer

Newbies. You'll need a few specifc tools to remove existing and fit a new one of these unless you want to lose the saving on a bike shop fitting it for you. An adjustable spanner and wd40 won't do it

I have a cheap road bike, had several bike's over last ten years, but I'm not big on maintaining it! But I'm intrigued to know what is the function of this part

Hi Pateo, it acts as a bearing between the frame and the crank arms/chainset. If you’re a regular cyclist you’ll find they wear out quickly, the higher end BBs tend to last a lot longer. This is up there with Shimano XTR, one of the best you can get. If you have creaking around that area, it potentially is a worn bottom bracket (but not always). For this price it’s worth buying as a spare.

If you are a regular crc customer check your emails £10 off £60 spend code before Monday , get 4= £12.50 each or maybe something else u need
Anyone used these, how does it compare to the new mt800 which I guess is slx/XT quality 68/73mm bb, Imanaged to bag a few at £9 and £12 3 months back

Get that creaking every now and again on my mtb, remove pedals , clean and regrease the pedal spindle threads that go into the crankarms ,, this is the frist thing i always check, creaking from BB area is so annoying, even had a dropper seatpost need regreasing that was causing a creak and felt like it was coming from BB lol.
