    So I believe it’s a push fit which I know nothing about.
    Can anyone offer advice on fitting and a suitable replacement.
    Do Hope make one?
    Thanks.

    Do Hope make one?

    Yes. Get one. Nothing else I’ve used is a fraction as good.

    You can get a cheap FSA on online about £30 of hope has just started to make a press fit one for lapierre.
    That’s the way I’ve gone and no issues so far, went through 3 shimano/FSA ones through 2 winters they seam to let water in a lot and I did have a pre 2012 zesty that didn’t have a hole in the BB to let the water out

    I replaced the BB in my Zesty a few weeks ago and just went for the FSA one. I thought you needed a special tool for the Hope one. Is this a different version?

    Been farting about for years with cheap bbrackets, as previous post the hope one is more bucks, but probably cheaper long term just keeps going and going

    Another vote for hope. I went through 2 shimano bbs in a year on my zesty. I used to take the seat post out, turn the bike upside down and watch the water flood out. This doesn’t happen with the hope unit.

    I got my lbs to supply and fit as I don’t have the specific tool that the hope bb requires.

    You do and at the price it’s clearly intended as a bike shop only job. Still, if it saves me replacing a bb every few months I’m happy to give the LBS my custom.
