- Uberbike Bottom Brackets – Any Good?
I bought a non-ceramic set in january, they were very dead by May with occaisional riding. One side was complete seized so that i couldn’t even free it after I’d removed it and soaked it in wd40.
Also had problems with two sets of their jockey wheels. I won’t be buying either from them again.
Their race matrix pads are awesome tho!Posted 9 months agoenigmasMember
Just bought one of the steel ones with the new skf bearings. Haven’t used it yet as the dry summer meant my sram bb has lasted more than a couple of months.
Seemed well made and I like how you can knock the bearings out and reuse the cups. I did pull the end caps off and they seemed secure and tolerances were tight. There was barely any grease between the cap and bearing though so I packed it up with marine grease to provide an extra layer of protection against water ingress.Posted 9 months agohardtailonlySubscriber
Can’t comment on the Uberbikes Stainless Steel ones, as they were out of stock (for weeks!!) when I needed one. Bought a Praxxis Works GXP instead which seems much better made than the standard SRAM offerings. Going good so far, but it’s only been in 3 months of dry weather so can’t comment on durability yet …Posted 9 months ago
I have just installed the Uberbike BB but I am having an issue. I have installed the spacers according to the instructions for my 73mm bottom bracket (2.5mm drive side bb cup, 5mm non drive side on axle). When I start to tighten up my GX Eagle cranks they become stiff to rotate at around 30nm. I am meant to tighten them up to 48-54nm. Is this right?Posted 4 months ago
