- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Bottom brackets should be replaced with some frequency, so it's best to just buy a new one every season and stick to the less expensive offerings, This one would be a prime example.
This is an ok bottom bracket, good for the low price. I don't think it is the best but I haven't had any issues with it. It has been a tiny bit creaky. Overall I would probably buy it again to save money overall in a full bike build.
Works like a bottom bracket
seems like it will be a fine bottom bracket. Obviously if you have the money go Chris king or even sram ceramic. But if youre like me then this will do just fine.
Don't Like Plastic
This bottom bracket would be great if it didn't have plastic contact points. Besides that it is another great sram product.
Just a bit of drag
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The SRAM bottom bracket is simple, but it has proven to be reliable and durable. If you want more performance, upgrade to a ceramic Sram BB, or a steel Chris King. Both will offer less drag and better efficiency, but are both much more expensive.
