- Race Face Press-Fit BB92 X-Type BB alternative
I’m have issues with my Race Face Press-Fit BB92 X-Type Bottom Bracket. Am I correct in thinking I can replace it with a Shimano bb like this?

I replaced my raceface bottom bracket on my Capra with a XT shimano BB, I was running aeffect cranks. I think that different raceface cranks use different spindle diameters.munrobikerMember
Which cranks have you got?
If it’s an Aeffect then yes, you can. If it’s one of the other Cinch cranks with a 30mm axle then no, you can’t – you need to use a PF86/91 BB with a 30mm hole. These are thin on the ground – the Raceface one is terrible, I’m currently using the Rotor 4130 and it’s been good but I’ve only had it in 6 weeks.RicBSubscriber
I’ve found the Race Face PF91 ok, but only if you take the inner seals off and pack the bearings with grease before fitting. I get over a year out of mine this way. Which still isn’t brilliant mindPosted 2 months ago
thanks for the help. To close out the thread, i ordered and fitted a Shimano XT MT800 MTB Press Fit Bottom Bracket Black 89.5/92mm. It works perfectly.Posted 1 month ago
