KarlEMemberI am replacing my current Raceface BB, Do I pay £62 for the Hope stainless steel version or get another Raceface for £33? Are the Hope BB’s worth the extra cash? Cheers Posted 9 years ago thomthumbMemberacros? cheaper than hope and come with a guarentee. not tried it though. Posted 9 years ago cySubscriberI’d say yes. My Hopes (I’ve got two) have been by far the longest lasting, smoothest and most free running external BB I’ve tried. It may be twice the price, but IME it’ll last more than twice as long. Posted 9 years ago chakapingSubscriberShimano BBs are cross-compatible with Raceface cranksets, in case you weren’t aware.RF don’t have a great rep for BB longevity – Shimano ones have lasted longer for me. Posted 9 years ago fbkMemberI was going to get a hope but apparently they don’t do one compatible with Mega-Exo crank sets. 🙁Got to stick with the FSA ones, which admittedly seem more durable than RaceFace cheese.
