RobertPerfect fit. Smooth bearings, clear instructions.
AndrewGreat way to convert your BB30 bottom bracket to take a SRAM GXP crankset. After over 14k miles on the first praxis replacing like for like was a no brainier. Easy to install on my cannondale, creakfree and lasts ages.
RichNo longer restricted by crank type for PF30 frames. A proper conversion too - not an 'adapter'. Only minor downside is that you need 2 shimano type BB tools to install but a small price to pay for your crank to work properly. Done well over 10,000kms with my last one of these and had no problems.
M.Converted my PF30 BB to GXP crank. Bearings are smooth and installation was easy-ish.
MarkThis is now my 2nd BB kit in Bianchi in 4 years. A great replacement for the PF30. Easy to fit and no creaking!!!!
SeanBetter than the converter inserts. Less noise.
ReneyExcellent bottom bracket for conversion of PF30 shell to Shimano Hollowcrank II Cranks. Easy to fit
Michael GStops creaking, exceptionally well made. Highly recommended.
Mr poynterRead the reviews before purchase, wasn't disappointed either. Quality product
Mr RogersGreat product. The quality was as promised and the easy to fit and adjust. Made converting from BB30 to hollow tech a breeze.
Mr WilloughbyGreat product that's fits a BB30 and a PF30 frame. Well machined and designed to avoid creaks, but can be removed to re- grease or change. Unlike the Shimano bearing cups these do not have a plastic sleeve between the bearing and shaft, so make sure you preload them when installing the crank arm otherwise creaking may start...
Adam CheesemanAmazing piece of kit. Have a Specialized Carbon Frame with a PF30 BB Shell, and wanted to run some Shimano XT Cranks. Great quality product, and comes with clear instructions (PRAXIS even have a video on it on YouTube) - I installed it within 10 minutes and what can I say other than it does what it says on the tin, is very well made and worth the money over cheaper, plastic versions. After a lot of research I am glad I went for the Praxis! Thoroughly recommended!
TomExcellent convertor for BB30 to Shimano. They have updated the design though, so it is now slightly more complicated to install and does require a fair bit more effort. Also not sure how easy removal will be now, as a much tighter fit (although that should be a good thing I guess).
RobertSet up in a PF30 BB shell as per the instructions and works perfectly. No creaking noise and spins smoothly.
AndrewThis is the best solution for a BB30 bottom bracket conversion I have used. Well worth the price.
Mrs lagmayFits perfectly on Shimano Dura Ace
Mr SkyI bought the Praxis BB30 to shimano converter because the existing BB30 bearing had become loose in the frame and so there was play in the bottom bracket. I had feared I might need a new frame. I bought the Praxis BB on the recommendation of a bike mechanic I know. He fitted it and secured it in place with locktite. It's now running nice and smooth again. Apparently the bearings in the Praxis BB can be easily greased so should give me a few years of service.
Mr ATKINSA good quality component and easy to fit without special tools. Clear and accurate description by Merlin helped identify part needed a good job all round
WatkinsSuperbly engineered bit of kit. Really easy to fit - there's a good step-by-step video guide on the Praxis website. Quick service from Merlin's, and best price as always
Kieran BurnsI've owned several Praxis conversion kits since replacing my SRAM groupset with a 105 one and I've never been more grateful. I killed the last one through my own fault, so a word of warning is necessary: while it's not complex to fit, it IS exacting in its requirements. Follow the instructions carefully and do NOT grease the crankshaft to make it easier to fit. If you do as I say, you will have a silent and smooth BB that makes using Hollowtech II cranksets a breeze. I really can't fault it in use (4 stars because of the fitting, not the use)
