All common systems are covered with the Hope Stainless Steel Bottom Bracket - making it ideal for Shimano, Race Face and others. The machined aluminium cups hold full stainless steel sealed cartridge bearings.
|Bottom Bracket Type:||BSA Threaded|
These custom, Swiss made bearings are double sealed, fully serviceable and removable which give much greater life span than stock units. The bearings are made (as all Hope bearings are) by INA and have been designed to run directly on the crankset axle, without the use of shims or spacers -again increasing life and reliability. Hope use a non contact, free running labyrinth seal to protect the bearing externally, and the machined aluminium centre tube is sealed internally with o-rings. Standard 6 colours are available on cups - red, blue, silver, black, gold and gunmetal, with the centre tubes being black on the stainless and gunsmoke on the ceramic.
Please Note: The 68/73mm size option is the universal type for both MTB and Road bikes, it is not the Hope Road Specific Series model. For the Road Specific model, choose the "Stainless Steel Road" option.
Tech Tip: the 68/73mm size option is the most commonly used size for threaded road and mountain bike bottom bracket shells. The wider 83mm size is mainly seen on "downhill" (ie. long travel) mountain bikes. Please confirm the width of your bike frame's bottom bracket shell before ordering.
