Hope external bottom bracket bearings
Just thinking out loud here but, would the shimano top hat mean you could run easy to get bearings, similar to the set up mrmonkfinger is talking about?
Another thing strikes me that though Hope & BETD are engineering companies making bike bits, they probably dont make bearings so someone out there has to be supplying them for another application. This being the case they might be around for less.
Are they 24 x 37 x 7?Posted 4 years ago
No idea what they are like, but cheap. (I only run cheap ones in my Shimano as they all die from lack of maintenance before they wear out)
Of course, if Mr Shimano had been sensible when he invented HT2, he’d have specc’d a 25mm crank axle…
Pretty sure he did it on purpose so the top hat made it 24mm & gave a marginal extra barrier against grime… or another barrier to hold the grime in, one or the other 🙂Posted 4 years ago
It appears you can buy them in quite a few places, Google has even thrown up these ceramic ones. Overkill though unless you get a huge “ceramic bearing inside” sticker with them.Posted 4 years ago
