Hope Stainless Steel MTB Bottom Bracket
Hope Stainless Steel Bottom Bracket
- External BSA threaded options of Hope's stainless steel bottom brackets
- Oversized 30mm option for hope cranks. Other models are standard 24mm for Shimano cranks
- The machined aluminium cups hold full stainless steel cartridge bearings
- These custom, Swiss made bearings are double sealed, fully serviceable and removable which give much greater life span than stock units.
- The bearings are made (as all our bearings are) by INA and have been designed to run directly on the crankset axle, without the use of shims or spacers - again increasing life and reliability.
- We use a non contact, free running labyrinth seal to protect the bearing externally, and the machined aluminium centre tube is sealed internally with o-rings.
- The unit is suitable for 68, and 73mm shell width
- Standard 6 colours are available on cups - red, blue, silver, black, purple and gunmetal, with the centre tubes being black
- Weight approx. 113g
Mr Cameron Seems very well made and no noises or creaks after first week of riding in winter. Only gripe is it uses a proprietary tool which you have to buy separately
Nibbhaya Looking forward to using this with larger bearings than HT and serviceable; you will need special tools though.
Mr Conrad After reading many reviews I decided to spend the extra cash and buy this bottom bracket. I haven’t used it enough to give a proper review but it’s buttery smooth and I’m sure it will last like all hope products do. Very happy so far and love the orange bracket on my orange bike.
Glenn Blake Easy to install and smooth rotation. This is my fourth or fifth Hope bottom bracket I've purchased for various bikes over the years. I have tried other brands, including other top manufacturers, but they just do not perform as well or spin as freely.
Snettisham Excellent bottom bracket have not had to change bearings on a similar set despite very regular use
Daniel I have been trashing the BB on my MTB about once a year. The appearance of the Hope BB is first rate. I will know if it is any better in a year.
Phil J Seals look good, smooth. Only a couple of rides so far. But no complaints. Another manufacturers B/B only lasted 221kms of single track shenanigans.
Marc Hand Quite simply the best (and only) bottom brackets I'll run on my bike- they cost a bit more but outlast by much more.
Mr Carr Fantastic Hope quality. I run Hope BBs on all my bikes and the are brilliant. They look great too. Great price and super fast delivery to NZ.
RogerM Very well made bearings and reassuringly expensive. Run very smoothly and hopefully they will last well. Replacing race face BB which lasted no time.
Mr P Easy to install, runs smooth and quiet.
Mr nickerson Easy to install, especially with the bottom bracket spanner. Bearings spin freely and smoothly, snug fit. Another great Hope product.
Mr Haworth Fit and forget from Hope. Minimal if any maintenance item through the life of your bike.
Follett Fit and forget product. Costs more but you know its going to last. Delivered next day - can't ask for more!
harding Feels much smoother than the shimano BB I replaced, very nice finish, great service and quick postage
Mr Henriksen Usual quality from Hope, fast delevery as usual from Merlin. Runs really good, and the sealing is with less friction, the possibility to change the cartridge bearing is great.
Nate K This is my second Hope bottom bracket and you can't beat Hope for build quality, ease of service, and overall quality. I have had bottom brackets from Shimano and Race Face and while they are adequate they aren't in the same league as Hope. Well worth the money in the long run.
Mrs Steele Simply the best value for money bottom bracket. Reliable, strong and great quality. Excellent service from Merlin.
Mr Evans I purchased this bottom bracket to replace a Shimano one. As with all components manufactured by the Hope boys and girls the bottom bracket is just another well made item. Super smooth in use which is mainly down to the quality bearings, you buy cheap you buy twice! Simple to fit with the correct tools, stripped and fitted in 10 mins!
Mr Carr Another great Hope product. The finishing is second to none and it runs like a dream. Great price and fast delivery as usual from Merlin! Thank you.
Mr mackay Made in the UK and well sealed against nasty Scottish mud and grit. The bearings are very smooth running
Mr Crooks Looks great and is the smoothest bottom bracket ever!
Mr Ellis Had one of these in my Hardtail for 6 years, re-grease regular, still running great, service from Merlin great yet again.
Andy A quality piece of kit from Hope, easy to fit even for a novice fettler of bikes. These bearings are more spinny than a spinny thing and ultra smooth. Excellent service from Merlin once again, thanks for answering my novice questions, received the goods within two days of placing my order, what more can I say.
Gavin Baird Top quality product and well presented in its packaging. Expensive however worth it. !
Mr Parkes Solid and reliable and looks nice
Mr Mills Great product and the usual suberb service from merlin. Its looks and feels suberb but its only been a couple of weeks, so its hard to really review it.
Mr LANGHORN Excellent price. Super fast delivery. Probably the best online bike shop right now. A+++++++++
Mr Hanson Simple instructions, easy to install, silent in operation. As spinny as a spinny thing.
Mr NORMAN Considerably better made than shimano items and very smooth.
Mr Mann Fantastic Bottom Bracket, very smooth
