Keeping the lingo simple.
Bottom bracket standards seem to be a dime a dozen these days. To stay on top of the game, SRAM stays current in order to reflect the sizes being used in the industry. This is its GXP BB92 Bottom Bracket. The BB92 uses two sets of steel bearings in nylon cups that "press" into each side of the bottom bracket shell. From here, you’re able to use any SRAM 24mm crankset in your "non-standard" bottom bracket shell.
- Steel bearings
- Pressfit BB92 compatible only
- Compatible with SRAM 24mm cranksets
- Item #SRM0334
- Q & A
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Okay, I don't like pressfit BBs. I just don't. I had one threaded that spoiled me and now the pressfits feel more like high maintenance. The SRAM BB92 on my Evil Following has been good so far though I've be pretty hair trigger on the feel and sound of it and if things go sideways fast I'll try to upgrade to a Chris King. Stay tuned....
Great bottom bracket!
Using this bottom bracket, you can install your GXP group into your BB92/PF92 frame! Awesome! My only complaint is, they do creak Its just the nature of the beast with Press Fit. One thing you can try, is installing the Bottom Bracket with Gasket maker, that has helped me in the past avoid creaking.
Does the job
This is what you need to run a SRAM GXP crank on a bb92 frame. For me that's a Pivot Mach 429 trail. Debated going with either ceramic or a Chris King bb but decided against it due to the much higher cost. These have worked well for me in the past and it hasnt really changed at all.
Reliable BB for the price
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I just replaced my original SRAM GXP BB92 on my Pivot Mach 429C. I run it with XX1. The original lasted 3 years and I'm basically replacing with the same thing. At a cost of $30.00 this is extremely reasonable. The bottom bracket is reliable and works well.
I'm reticent to pay a lot of money for high end press fit BBs. Mainly because if they do have issues, they're a pain to get out. This BB fits the bill for both reliability and cost.
It's Ok, Hard to Remove
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I had a bearing issue on the drive side bearing. I tried to remove using the Park Tools BBT 90.3 and both bearings were knocked out of the housing rendering it useless. I had used a sealant when installing to reduce noise, not sure how that might have played a part.
hi i was wondering if this bb is compatible with a raceface sixc crank with 83mm bb shell
I have a 2015 Scott Spark 730 with Shimano SM-BB71-41A and I'm confused. I'm thinking of upgrading to the Sram XX1 Eagle drivetrain.
I need to make the bottom bracket change?
If so, is the Sram GXP cranckset compatible? Or is it the BB30?
Hi Leao you will want a different Bottom bracket. You will want to use a BB86 GXP BB ( item# SRM0362) and the GXP crankset option.
I have a 2016 Giant TCR with a sram Red Quarq power meeter. Is this the correct bottom bracket?
I have a 2015 Pivot Mach 6. I'm thinking of upgrading to the Sram Eagle drivetrain. If I buy this and the Sram Eagle GXP crankset, then it should work right? thanks!
Hey Mazukea, That is correct, the Mach 6 uses the PF92 and this BB would work with a Eagle GXP crankset (non boost for the 2015 Mach 6). If you have any other questions or would like putting in an order for the drivetrain, feel free to reach me at 801.204.4547 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheers, Connor
Can this be fitted on to a Yeti SB6C XO 1 2015
Hey Jimmy, yes it can if you are using SRAM cranks too. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any other questions. 1-800-409-4502 x 4775 or email@example.com
Does the SRAM GXP BB92 Bottom Bracket fit a Giant XTC 3 2013? Are there other BBs that would fit this bike?
I would confirm with a Giant dealer, but from what i can find, the XTC does use the BB92 bottom bracket.
Can I use this bracket to my SRAM X0 10-Speed Crankset?
There are 2 types of X0 cranks, GXP and BB30. It should say on the arm what it is. If its GXP AND the frame is designed for bb92 pressfit bottom brackets it will work. Give us a call and we can help you make sure you pick out the correct option.
