  • Back to square taper! Anyone else given up?
  • I agree PP, I always thought ST was a god awful creation, and that HTII was the answer to all my bottom bracket related problems. But it’s not been good to me. I have no idea how you got that many miles out of yours bristolbiker. For the record my frame is faced and the bbs have been installed correctly! I think I just ride in crappy conditions too much.

    The commuter see’s almost exclusively road miles (Airbourne Carpe Diem frame with mechanical discs, so it gets a very occassional through-the-woods bash when time/conditions permit). As I say, the fact that it’s only a case of undoing the two pinch bolts and you can have access to the BB cups means that I actually do more maintenance with HTII than square taper. I generally take the cups out and clean/regrease every 6 months or so and that seems to have kept it sweet…. to the point that the rear hub bearings are about to die first – go figure! 😉

    Crank options for ST depends on geared or SS but:

    – Old, quality XT/XTR/Raceface 2nd hand cranks
    – Middleburn
    – TA
    – White Industries
    – erm…
