    Unsung hero.

    The SRAM GXP Team Bottom Bracket features Gutter Seal Technology to reduce friction and weight for smooth-spinning performance. Brand specific, this bottom bracket can only be installed with SRAM and Truvativ cranksets, due to its left side bearing, which uses a smaller diameter to fit with the stepped spindle of SRAM's cranks. Note that this bottom bracket is compatible with all SRAM road and Truvativ mountain cranksets, and it comes with English threading only. It fits 68 and 73mm bottom bracket shells, with included spacers for fitment with 73mm bottom bracket shells.

    • Compatible with all SRAM road, Truvativ mountain cranksets
    • Fits 68, 73mm bottom bracket shells (comes with spacers for 73mm)
    • English threading
    • Item #SRM0378

    Works Fine

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bottom brackets are a "wear and tear" item; you'll need to replace them more frequently the more you ride (and even more frequently if you ride in wet/gritty/muddy/salty/humid conditions) and this is the proper choice for a GXP spindle and 68/73mm threaded frame.

    Solid, good price point

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like the SRAM GXP system. Simple to install and remove the BB and Crankset. The team gxp bb is at a good price point. I don't like spending a bunch of money on the BB since they wear out like chains and tires. Only annoying thing is that the dust cap seems to pop off easily when the crank is not installed but it's a non issue once the crank is installed.

    Last and lasts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have only 10k miles on this BB and it's still going strong. I don't ride at all in the rain or mud though. Mainly typical CA weather. Solid BB and never needed any servicing.

    Pressfit like BB30 or BB86? I didn't notice any issue with this but I guess I'm on the lighter side.

    3rd season now and it still works great!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've put almost 10,000 miles on this bottom bracket with my SRAM Red cranks and have not had any problems. 2x a year I will remove the BB, clean it, grease the threads, and put it back together. I don't ride in the rain very often, but I do ride through the winter when the BB is exposed all the sand and other crap.

    I'm not sure how often you are supposed to replace a BB, but I can see getting another year out of this one (at least) and if I have to replace it, I know it won't hit my wallet hard at all.

    Unanswered Question

    Hi There,
    I have a SRAM gxp chainset, it came with an English bottom bracket. My bike has an Italian bottom bracket shell (70mm wide, rather than the English 68mm). Will the axle length be OK, if I buy an Italian threaded gxp bottom bracket? Do sram make the cups 2mm narrower, so that the distance between the cranks is still the same, or do I have to buy Italian specific cranks?
    Thank you.

    This says "needs spacers to be used as a 73mm" that is fine but the last one I bought that worked on 68/73mm (not this brand) just used a "spacer"/"washer" type thing on the threads to "shrink" a 73mm for use as a 68mm... I don't want that type of setup.... I just want a 68mm. does this one start out as a 68mm? Thanks

    You'll always need a washer or a couple with this BB. I think its one with a 73 and 3 with a 68. The only time you wouldn't use one is with a E-type front derailleur which are rare these days. Refer to instruction manual for exact numbers to use and which side to use them on.

    Ok, but the included instruction page for a SRAM crankset indicates that the spacers should be used for all but a 72mm shell.



    I never much liked the graphic only type instructions and its a bit confusing as I did not think you should use the spacers for a road 68 shell but they seem to indicate otherwise????
