New superstar BB
Sooo, at the risk of being overwhelmed by octopron, I got an e-mail the other day about THESE from Superstar.Posted 6 years ago
What say the armchair engineering experts please?
It sounds feasible, but Im not clued up enough about bearings to know for certain. Depends how good (or bad) the sealing is too I guess.akiraSubscriber
I think the OPs link is a problem because he was signed in, if you just go into the website normally you can have a look.Posted 6 years ago
installation error = using rock to fit it?Posted 6 years ago
Seriously though, I think they mean the pre-loading of the bearings being excessive causing premature bearing wear. Although my first HT2 BB was a SS one and it didn’t long, although this may have been due to excessive preload. the bearing sealing wasn’t great. Still I still have the cups in use with replacement bearings, so not a complete loss.thisisnotaspoonMember
Anyone got my barge pole?
If the bearings are as crap as the normal BB’s I’d give it 5 minutes.
As bigyin said though, the normal ones take a standard bearing, fit some SKF ones and enjoy years of trouble free use, almsot worth £20 for some shells.
Bin SS’s BB spacers though, they’re flimsy and deform, use some old shimano ones instead.Posted 6 years ago
