    I don’t think they do if you buy them from Rose bikes

    A “Full Retail” crankset will normally ship with a BB but the cheap “OEM” stuff often available through Merlin, CRC, Rose etc may not.

    In any case, a standard Shimano-compatible chainset will fit in a standard Shimano-compatible Hope BB.

    I’d wondered this as I need a new BB and some rings, and it seems a chainset is about the same cost!

    As above really. I’m thinking of buying a new chainset but they all seem to come with new BB’s too. I’m happy with my Hope one though so don’t really need to change so could I just stick the new chainset onto that?

    Cheers
