Hope 68/73mm 30mm Bottom Bracket

Hope 68/73mm 30mm Bottom Bracket

Keep your 30mm crankset turning over smooth and fast by upgrading to the Hope 68/73mm 30mm Bottom Bracket. The machined aluminum cups hold stainless steel cartridge bearings inside stainless steel races, providing a much greater life span than stock units. The Hope 30mm bottom bracket allows the use of any 30mm crankset within a BSA threaded BB shell of 68mm, 73mm or 83mm, meaning it can be used on select road bikes, mountain bikes, and downhill bikes.

Hope 68/73mm 30mm Bottom Bracket Features:

  • External bottom bracket designed for threaded bottom brackets
  • The machined aluminium cups hold stainless steel cartridge bearings in stainless races
  • High quality stainless steel bearings give a much greater life span than stock units
  • Cartridge bearings are replaceable
  • Free running labyrinth seal protects bearings and has less drag
  • The unit is suitable for 68, 73, and 83
  • Designed to suit cranks with 30mm axles
  • Suitable for road, mtb, and DH
  • Weight 102 gram

Please note specific fitting tool (available separately) is needed to fit bottom bracket. It is critical to bearing life that the frame is prepared correctly. Please follow manufacturer’s instructions.

Excellence with an asterisk
Great bottom bracket for Hope's new rankset, but it requires Hope's HTT188 bottom bracket tool. Nothing else will work. Since the tool only seems to be available in England, I made my own on a waterjet.

PROS: Durable, Attractive Design, Lightweight

CONS: Difficult To Install

Hopefully it won't explode
Well, let's kick this off: full disclosure, I haven't ridden the bike with this bottom bracket yet. The wheels are currently being built and it's difficult to hop on the bike in my Park stand and pretend I'm riding because I keep hitting the floor.
Ok, serious time. As the other reviewer mentioned, this BB deffo requires the Hope specific bottom bracket tool, HTT188. Since I don't have access to a waterjet, I simply bought the tool from Jenson for a whole $20, which really isn't all that expensive.
More fun stuff; I was tossing this BB in my WFO and went Next SL on my MTB to keep the WT DWN. This bottom bracket will play with the Next SL cranks, but it requires a nanny made by Race Face. My bottom bracket shell width is 73 mm, so I required a part number F10010 shim kit. The super secret about that kit is you don't need all three pieces, just a single 2.5 mm shim.
So yeah. Hopefully this BB doesn't fail like the 30mm RF Cinch BBs are rumored to do.
See you on the trails.

PROS: Superneat Anodized Red, Easy To Install, Attractive Design

CONS: Bearing Seem Tight

So, I am wanting to put a bb30 crankset into my threaded bsa 68/73 singlespeed bike. This is the ticket right?

BEST ANSWER: Yes they will work, however two things to ensure proper fit. You will need the Hope tool to install and once in your bike make sure the outside measurement of the bearing cups works for crankset you are using. I had to add a 1 mm spacer to non drive side using Race Face atlas crank.
