ThreadFit 24mm Bottom Bracket

Before the dizzying array of bottom bracket standards that all just look like a gaping hole in your frame, bottom bracket cups used to thread in to precisely-manufactured frames, and lasted darn near forever, rarely creaking. The Chris King ThreadFit 24mm bottom bracket is the perfect match for one of those frames of yesteryear (or current day, if you look for the manufacturers hesitant to jump on the latest fads). It’s designed to accept 24mm spindles, and tapered 22/24mm spindles, like you’ll find on most modern cranksets from Shimano, SRAM, FSA, etc. Beyond the satisfaction that your bottom bracket assembly will be the most colorful, you’ll also spin smoothly on King’s legendary bearings.

  • Requires Chris King Conversion Kit #12 to fit standard, 24mm-spindle Shimano cranks
  • Tapered, 22/24mm spindles (like those from SRAM) will require a small adapter
  • Thread-in compatibility
  • Steel or ceramic bearings
  • Made in USA
  • Item #CKG000M

Over 5,000 miles in 8 months

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

I've ridden bicycles for over 100,000 miles. This Chris King bottom bracket is a gem. Very little friction, easy to maintain, and lasts a long time. Since I ride year round and am in the snow belt, I service my Chris King bottom bracket about every 400 miles using their grease injection tool. So easy and fast as the injected grease pushes out the contaminants and greases at the same time. I have found that the best way is to remove the circlips and washers each time because if I do not the washers will come out from the pressure of the grease injection. In short, you can do perfectly fine without the grease injection tool. I have tried the shimano bottom brackets and they are not as easily serviceable. I purchased the tool from enduroforkseals to pull the shimano bearings, grease them, and reinsert them. While that worked okay, it was quite a hassle because I had to pull the bearing cups out of the frame every time I serviced the bearings. Plus, I had to replace the bearings every 3,500 miles because the non-drive side always got rough. This year, Chris King upgraded their warranty on this bottom bracket to lifetime for the original owner so I purchased a second set and am now using that one exclusively. No way would I go back to any other brand for this particular bottom bracket.

1000s of miles later...still smooth

This is the end-all, be-all to bottom brackets. I have this bb on my bikepacking bike, which has been over 4000 miles of rugged "road" and trail use, and the Chris King is still running as smoothly as ever. Ck's handy fit finder makes it easy to find the adapter you may need to fit your crankset spindle.

Wear In While Others Wear Out

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

As mentioned in all the reviews, there is no better bearing than a Chris King bearing. Their precision is second to none and while other BBs are wearing out, Chris King is wearing in. The longer you use them, the better they get. I've got this threadfit on my 2013 Santa Cruz, serviced once a year with Chris King's handy grease tool, and it's better than the day I installed it. Dead silent operation and without the chain attached, spin the crank, go make a sandwich, stop it after lunch.

The gold standard

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Really the gold standard for BB’s with Chris King’s house-made bearings. Manufacturing tolerances are super tight, so I’ve never had one of these fail on me prematurely. Upgrade to the ceramic bearings if you want extra bike bling.

Best there is

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Chris King leaves all other bearing components in the dust. This bottom bracket is the best there is. From XC to Freeride, there's nothing with King's longevity. Always rebuildable if you neglect it too long. Ultra-smooth for years. I've been building my custom bikes with King products for years because I know I can count on them to last and out perform all others out there.

King of the Castle

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

Chris King makes it's super easy to get a quality bottom bracket in a multitude of colors to match your ride. The instructions make the install pretty straight forward and if you pick up the grease tool you can service this BB yourself and keep it running smooth for years. All my bikes run the King and I've never had any issues. Cross, Road, TT, and MTB it's the only way to go.

Bottom Bracket-alicious!

If you're looking for a mighty, mighty fine BB for your bike, then this is what you need. Installs rather easily, and you're off pedaling. Easy to service too, if you need to re-grease later on down the trail. I am running this with a pair of Middleburn cranks on a 100mm wide bottom bracket fat bike. For me, I needed to get the Conversion Kit #16 to make everything play nice together. Normally I am all about Shimano setups; however, since they don't make a BB for a fat bike, I had to get this guy. Over the top, but then again, that's what I'm going for.

Smoooooth

Familiarity:

I swapped out my GXP bb for this one and the difference is amazing. The quality of this product and the bearings is second to none. Highly recommended.

Hi TJ, I have 1400 x1 GXP crank, do I need a conversion kit?

will this fit with a DA 9000 crankset
