Beautiful Engineering

I have a Hope threaded BB on another bike and after 20K miles it is still going strong. The press fit version for my new build seems even better engineered and certainly superior to the Shimano versions I looked at. I look forward to 20K + on this. Expensive, yes, but if it lasts this long it is good value.

Perfect replacement

Needed a replacement for my Sram PF30 bearings, but because Sram glue the bearings in the plastic cups you need the complete kit. The Hope kit includes stainless cups and the quality bearings are press fitted, so you only have to replace the bearings saving money in the long run. My local bike shop fitted mine for £15 as they had the special tool.

Super Smooth

Wow just fitted the Hope PF46 stainless steel bottom bracket kit, replacing the Sram PF30 nylon kit because one of the bearings had seized. I didn't think i'd notice the difference but it's chalk n cheese well worth the extra few quid.

Bottom Brackets Guide

What is a bottom bracket?

A bottom bracket is the bearings that the crank axle passes through, keeping the cranks turning smoothly.

Who needs a bottom bracket?

Every bike has a bottom bracket, so if your bike is creaking or feels stiff or notchy as you turn the pedals, your bottom bracket might be worn out and need replacing.

What are the choices?

It’s not so much a choice as a matter of compatibility. You need to establish whether your bottom bracket is press-fit or threaded and what size. Then you need to make sure it is compatible with your crankset. If it’s worn out, replacing like for like is often the easiest thing to do.

What should I buy with it?

You need some specialist tools both to fit and remove bottom brackets and to remove the cranks to get at it.

Anything else?

If you’re fitting a bottom bracket into a brand new frame, your frame will need some preparation first. Bottom bracket shell facing tools can be very costly, so you might need to bring it into a bike workshop to get this done.
