Hope Press Fit Bottom Bracket - Various sizes and bearing options
Hope Press Fit Bottom Bracket to fit BB92, BB89.5 and BB86.5 internal bottom shells. Designed to fit Shimano Hollowtech II, Sram GXP and any 24mm crank axle. easily serviced with replaceable sealed bearings and external labyrinth seals.
Bought a Hope press fit bottom bracket, in an effort to cure endless squeaks/creaks from existing the BB86 bottom bracket on my road bike. Yes its heavier and more expensive than plastic shelled equivalents, but its smooth, absolutely silent and much better built than both previous BB's I've had on the bike. Highly recommended.
Top quality product by Hope. Fitting was very easy, when using the Hope PF41 Press Fit Bottom Bracket Installation Tool. Online video by Hope and supplied instructions made fitting very easy.
First experience of a Hope Bottom Bracket&. and I was not disappointed. Easy to fit and drips with Hope Quality. 10/10
Had a few shimano press-fit BB's and they dont last very long. With Hope you pay more but just change the bearings when worn out. The quality is first rate with stainless steel cartridge bearings as standard.
Quality and british engineering at its best. Initially I had a Shimano XTR press fit BB but then decided to upgrade and spend considerably more on this one. However straight away it looks much better, more refined and robust since it is all metalic and not plastic as the Shimano. Yes, it is heavier but it's worth it since it was designed for british weather. The main advantage is that after you will only need to replace the bearings and not the whole thing and so you start to make money back. Good design and detail, even the plastic box where it comes is well designed. Also got 10% off from Merlin so I'm really happy.
Upgraded my existing plastic shelled press fit BB92 by shimano. Which probably only lasted a season of hard riding before it started feeling horrible. Straight away just looking at it you can tell this was an upgrade.
Aluminum cups with the screw on center tube to internally connect the two outer cups. Nice and smooth bearings that are replaceable! So you don't have to remove the cups later on, just replace the bearings. I also bought the install tool which made it super easy to install and will be used later on when it comes to install new bearings. Ive had a few rides on it now and the cranks spin so smooth compared to before. And I'm expecting that Hope reliability that they are known for. Recommend this upgrade to anyone with a horrible press fit BB!
Replacement for Shimano press fit. Well made with replaceable stainless bearings
Superb , infinitely better than SRAM previously fitted. Does need the appropriate Hope tool to fit so expensive up front purchase but long term I'm sure it will prove a wise purchase
