The Cinch PF30 fits a 30mm spindle in a frame equipped with the PressFit 30 standard. The Cinch PF30 features the durable and smooth-running 6808 bearings filled with Phil Wood grease (long considered the industry gold standard of bearing grease).

Is this compatible with PF92 bottom brackets?

Howdy, no these are not compatible with PF92 bottom brackets. You will want the Raceface Cinch PF92 bottom bracket ( https://www.backcountry.com/race-face-cinch-bb92?rr=t ). Let me know if you have any questions on which bottom bracket you need for your bike/crankset and happy to help! Cheers, Connor

Works Great

    Works great with RF cinch cranks. No issues and still spinning smoothly after months of use.

    Bearings wear fast.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have about 1000 miles of riding on these in mostly dry Utah conditions. It's mounted on a Yeti SB5c with Next SL cranks. I had an issue that required taking the crankset off and I found that the bearings on both sides had gotten pretty rough. As a basic BB, they do the job, and they're not expensive. It would probably be a good idea to check them at least once per season, though. If you get better wear, great.

    what's not to like

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Popped it on my Niner Air 9 with the fancy Park tool. I run the Next crankset and not an issue yet. Perfect fit and finish.

    It's a Cinch

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Race Face came out with their new Cinch standard, and it is more of a standard than most other offerings. The beauty of the Cinch platform is that you buy a single crank that is usable on any bike with the correct bottom bracket. The Bottom Bracket to Crank confusion is solved, you just need to answer the frame to bottom bracket question.

    quick and quiet

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I put this on my Niner air 9 carbon and after about 2 months of abuse it's running smooth and no creaks.

    CINCH it up.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Easy to install, the CINCH system allows for one crank/spindle to be used on any BB that has CINCH system. This paired with the Next SL's are what drive my SB5c and I will definitely buy it for my next bike too.

    impressive

    It's a BB that presses in! I haven't had any issues with it in the 200+ miles I have on it. Still spins smoothly!
