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 CameronSeems 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
NibbhayaLooking forward to using this with larger bearings than HT and serviceable; you will need special tools though.
Mr ConradAfter 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 BlakeEasy 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.
SnettishamExcellent bottom bracket have not had to change bearings on a similar set despite very regular use
DanielI 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 JSeals 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 HandQuite simply the best (and only) bottom brackets I'll run on my bike- they cost a bit more but outlast by much more.
Mr CarrFantastic 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.
RogerMVery well made bearings and reassuringly expensive. Run very smoothly and hopefully they will last well. Replacing race face BB which lasted no time.
Mr PEasy to install, runs smooth and quiet.
Mr nickersonEasy to install, especially with the bottom bracket spanner. Bearings spin freely and smoothly, snug fit. Another great Hope product.
Mr HaworthFit and forget from Hope. Minimal if any maintenance item through the life of your bike.
FollettFit and forget product. Costs more but you know its going to last. Delivered next day - can't ask for more!
hardingFeels much smoother than the shimano BB I replaced, very nice finish, great service and quick postage
Mr HenriksenUsual 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 KThis 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 SteeleSimply the best value for money bottom bracket. Reliable, strong and great quality. Excellent service from Merlin.
Mr EvansI 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 CarrAnother 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 mackayMade in the UK and well sealed against nasty Scottish mud and grit. The bearings are very smooth running
Mr CrooksLooks great and is the smoothest bottom bracket ever!
Mr EllisHad one of these in my Hardtail for 6 years, re-grease regular, still running great, service from Merlin great yet again.
AndyA 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 BairdTop quality product and well presented in its packaging. Expensive however worth it. !
Mr ParkesSolid and reliable and looks nice
Mr MillsGreat 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 LANGHORNExcellent price. Super fast delivery. Probably the best online bike shop right now. A+++++++++
Mr HansonSimple instructions, easy to install, silent in operation. As spinny as a spinny thing.
Mr NORMANConsiderably better made than shimano items and very smooth.
Mr MannFantastic Bottom Bracket, very smooth
