- Hope / GXP Conversion – any users out there?
i used to have the hope BB with converters and a truvativ stylo crankset. ran it on 2 bikes for over a year with no issues, and so far subsequently have been using the same hope BB (well, one of them) on my current MTB with an XT crankset for 8 months, still going strong.Posted 3 years ago
so yeah. it’s been fine for me!NorthwindSubscriber
I’m sure I’ve got a set of hte inserts somewhere, never likely to use them, do you want me to see if I can track them down?
(reason being, I replaced my Truvativ cranks with Shimano, just made more sense. Especially since my cheap old XTR M970s weighed almost exactly the same as my X0 carbons 😛 )Posted 3 years ago
I’m fed up of replacing my Sram bottom bracket every few months when the drive side bearing fails despite no end of maintenance to avoid any issues. I know hope stuff is generally pretty good on the longevity side of things but I haven’t tried this set up before.
I think I’m going to go for a Hope steel b/b with the gxp conversion kit but want to know who has done this and how long your b/b has lasted so far in comparison to the Sram b/b.Posted 3 years ago
