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

Highest quality as expected from Hope
Best BB around for 30mm cranks. Run with my Turbine cinch cranks. Ran the raceface 30mm BB for 5 months before the bearings shot. Swapped to Hopes 30mm BB and it's been running smooth for almost 2 years, only replaced now for a 500+ mile backpacking trip starting soon (better to be safe than sorry). Just remember to get Hope's specialty 30mm BB tool for install/removal.

Serious upgrade for RF Turbine Cranks
I was sorely disappointed with the garbage RF 30mm BB that came with the RF turbines (xtype or some such). They siezed up on me with no mistreatment and very few miles. There were not that many options for external 30mm but there was no way I was going to give RF more $ for that crap design. Decided to try these and have been extremely happy. They are dead smooth and spin fantastic. Yes, I did have to spring for that goofy HTT188 proprietary tool as well but it was worth it. These are a major upgrade if your running turbines.

Top notch BB
I installed this in my Banshee Rune with 73mm BB shell. It had the RaceFace BB and it lasted ~6 months. Installation was super easy using the Hope BB tool (not included). Once I was done with the install which only took 30 minutes, I spun the cranks without the chain and it seemed to spun for a long time. This BB is so smooth like spinning on nothing at all. I am glad I spent the extra money. I just wish it had came with the tool. This is the only reason for not giving 5 stars. However, I'd do it again.

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.

So, I am wanting to put a bb30 crankset into my threaded bsa 68/73 singlespeed bike. This is the ticket right?
jennifer j on Dec 12, 2016
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.
Can a race face B.B. tool be used on this?
JESUS JR G on Apr 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It cannot. You need the hope bb tool. I have both as I tried a race face bb before I switched to the hope bb.

BEST ANSWER: I'm using Race Face Turbine Cinch and they worked well so I don't see why they wouldn't work as long as they are the same diameter.......30mm
Will this fit with a SRAM FORCE 1 BB30 42 TOOTH CRANKSET? Axle lenght is ok? Cup size? Axle width? Is everything all right. I'm lost with all these non-standard options.

BEST ANSWER: No, BB30 is not compatible with threaded external cups. You'll need a BB30 or PF30 frame to run the BB30 cranks.
does this come with a sleeve?
SIMON L on Apr 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Hope only supplies the parts shown: cups and spacers.
