      Comments about Hope Technology Hope Ceramic 68/73mm Bottom Bracket:

      I was unprepared for how much of a difference this bottom bracket made to my riding experience.

      First of all, this is a quality piece from one end to the other. Even the center tube of the bracket is machined, anodized aluminum, It is beautiful in blue and exudes quality and value. But...

      ... the real magic happens the first time you turn your crank over. It is hard to describe the silky smooth feel that transmits power through this bearing to your rear tire. I had been using $30-$45 bottom brackets previously and just thought they all felt the same. I was very wrong. Much of the effort I was experiencing prior to this Hope was actually BB friction under pressure.

      I am a short, powerful rider on a 2005 Specialized Epic and a am hard on my bike, relying on power more often than spinning since converting to a 1 X 9 drive train. But after just one ride, I switched from a 34T chainring to a 36T because the ceramic Hope was so much smoother and more efficient I found I could spin faster with less effort and frequently could tap out my top gear with the 34T.

      It's a pretty bold statement to say I had to move up a couple of teeth in my chainring just because of a smoother bottom bracket, but that's exactly what happened.

      And the thing is silent. No more nebulous, grinching sounds coming from the drive train. I always wondered what 'that' sound was. It was a cheap bottom bracket begging for mercy.

      If you've got the money to cover the cost of one of these burning a hole in your pocket and are wondering how best to use it to upgrade your ride, look no further. Is it better than any of the other premium ceramic offerings out there? Couldn't say. But I can say you will NEVER regret putting one of these on. It's that good. It's the single, biggest change I've ever made to my bike. Easy 5-star rating. Two thumbs up with a wiggle.

        At first i wasn't sure about paying $$$ on a BB but then, i've read about the reviews on the Hope Ceramic BB and just gave in. It was 1 of the best upgrade i did for my bike. Very smooth pedaling and looks great also. A big difference between my slx bb. GO BUY THIS PRODUCT AND YOU WILL LOVE IT!
