BB30 has anyone replaced one ?
I’ve replaced the actual crankset, which is blindingly easy but never the bearings although with the Park Tools bearing remover that looks to be an easy job as well.
When you replace the crankset be sure to tighten the big bolt to the right torque then re-check it after the first couple of rides.Posted 3 years agomaximusmountainMember
The only good thing about bb30 in my opinion is how cheap the bottom bracket bearings are. £12 for brand new stainless bearings?! Yes please!
As above it can all be done with a hammer and a screwdriver really. Freeze the bearings and flannel the BB then put warm water over it to help expand it (thanks for those tips mike) then it all goes on lovely, although I used superstars tool to do it.Posted 3 years agoThrustyjustMember
I have a sleeve fitted in my road bike and used a headset press to put it in. My Hope BB runs very well, no creaks or groans. Cant say I have noticed any supposed loss of stiffness etc. Easy to fit. Comes with a splodge of Loctite. Make sure the grooved bit is pressed in on the drive side.Posted 3 years agopetefromearthMember
I have bb30 on a cannondale road bike I bought last year. Starting to get creaks recently, and I wonder whether this is the actual bearings, or just the press fit itself
The latter seems more likely. If it is this, I don’t understand how one of the press fit converter jobbies will help this. It gives you more crank and bb options, but otherwise surely it’s the same?
Anyway I’ll have a go at refitting the bearings and see what happens. Can anyone recommend the right grease and tools for this job?Posted 3 years ago
