Economic and decent.
I use this for XC riding and racing.

I had a new technician at my LBS install my first one to show me how to install an external BB. It turns out he overtightened it which cracked one of the plastic spacers and lead to it only lasting a season of racing before it started creaking noisily. I bought another one and installed it properly myself and it has lasted me fine over another season.

The BB weighed 110g.

I bought this to replace the one that came with my Deore crankset. The Deore BB only lasted 150 miles before the drive side bearings were shot.

Since installing this I have ridden well over 1000 miles and it is still running smooth.

How many BB spacers does this come with? I am hoping to be able to mount an ISCG adapter but that will only work if there are 3 spacers.
Nathan C on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: There are 3 spacers, each is 2.5mm.
Wich tool do I need to install?
A shopper on Jan 8, 2017
BEST ANSWER: You will need a Park tool BBT-9 bottom bracket tool. To remove the x type crank you need an 8mm allen wrench.
Does this fit 24mm spindle?
