- Somebody give me some hope (F***ing ISIS content)
Well new cranks are gonna cost me £150 with a new BB (I know sq. tapers are cheap). Don’t really want to do that. Gonna have it all out and clean it all and re grease, see what that does. May try the torque idea. I’m worried that there’s something wrong with my cranks. Is that possible? What could it be?Posted 8 years agocrazy-legsSubscriber
Early ISI ones were certainly shite but the newer ones all seem OK – mine have lasted a good while now (both RaceFace units), for a while when they first came out I was on first name terms with Race Face warrnty department as they sorted me out replacements!
Try facing the BB shell and follow the torque recommendations to the letter.Posted 8 years agoStonerSubscriber
dont worry, it’s irrelevant in the context of ISIS BBS.
but if you had outboard bearing BB cranks then some people say that you ought to have the outer faces of the BB shell aligned in plane with themselves using a tool that shaves the metal until both faces are parallel.Posted 8 years agoOnzadogSubscriber
I jumped on the ISIS bandwagon when it very first rolled into town. The Raceface turbine cranks and signature XS bottom bracket have worked flawlessly. In all that time, I’ve only had the bottom bracket bearings changed once (it’s servicable). Not bad for something that’s gone through about 4 or 5 sets of chainrings in that time.Posted 8 years ago
These comments are extremely helpful but I have spent £50 on a crank bros BB which should be reliable. Suppose I’m gonna wait to see what the shop say once they clean up, inspect and refit. Do I have to give in to a certain amount of creak? seems strange that it would creak any amount, especially after a couple of rides; all seals, bearings etc should be perfect.Posted 8 years ago
