Works as intended, gets the job done

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I bought a BMC Teammachine frame that takes a shimano BB86 bottom bracket but I wanted to run my SRAM Red GXP crank on it and this got the job done. Pressfit BB86 shell converts to SRAM/Truvativ GXP.

Gets the job done

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Unless you are riding TT or at an elite level where every watt counts, no need to run ceramic. This will get the job done!

Great BB

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I purchased this BB to change my FSA crank to a Sram Red crank. This is exactly what you need if you have a BB86 frame and want to install a Sram/GXP 24mm spindled crank.

Installation was a breeze. I used a 32mm socket to tap the bearing cups in to place. Went in good and true and with ease. A quick note on installation: The spindle on the Sram crank is tapered. The drive side is the larger end of the spindle. The bearing cups are sized with the drive side having a larger ID than the non drive side. Therefore, make sure you install the right bearing on the right side.

Bearings roll well! No problems for me with this BB.

Would this works with Fuji Altamira 2.0 2011 frame, i'm planning to get SRAM force crank to fit in the frame.

Yes that will work. You would then be able to use the GXP spindle.
