    As above
    Any reccomendations for a decent BB for my Truvativ GXP BB?
    Had superstar before but not too impressed.
    Would like red
    Cheers

    Hope with GXP adaptors?
    Or if money is no object, Sram blackbox GXP, which helpfully comes in red only.

    Hope with the adapter works like a Hope ie very well for a long time.

    I was replacing GXPs every few months. Fitted a Hope BB over 3 years ago and it’s still good – high initial cost but it’s lasted and worked out cheaper than the Truvativ alternative.

    I’ve just bought an Uberbike ceramic GXP BB for a ‘reasonable’ £62, looks good, won’t be able to tell you about it’s reliability until spring though!

    My experience of the Uberbike BB has been well, forgettable really.

    That’s to say it’s done its job very well since I slapped it on my hack bike sometime back in January. Still spinning nice and freely and with zero maintenance.

    Been a tightwad, I went for the cheaper stainless option.

    Token do one for about £25. Haven’t used one though so can’t comment past it existing.

    Ordered a Hope ceramic from Halfords at the weekend – £77 minus an extra 10% meaning £69.30 (think the offer is still on today) which is pretty good value. Stainless ones at £56, £50.40 with discount.
    Need to get the adapters separately though.
