Strengths:    Smooth and quite. Nice materials.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
My Shimano Deore bottom bracket developed a clicking noise after only a couple hundred miles. Did a lot of research before purchasing my Hope bottom bracket. I expected the new Hope bracket to be quite but I did not expect it to have made such a big difference in my bike. It was well worth the extra $$ for a top notch bottom bracket.

Strengths:    Rebuildable
Stainless cartridges

Weaknesses:    A tad pricey

Bottom Line:   
Another quality product from the blokes at Hope. Typically rebuildable and durable, this BB will be another quality piece on any bike. The black ones on my bikes match the Saint cranks waaaay better than the supplied Shimano gold ones and operate far more smoothly. i ride a freeride hardtail and do some trials, and this BB has held up quite well. i went through Shimano BB's on a pretty disappointing frequency, but some of that may have been due to misadjustment.

Stainless steel nipples ?

Silly question, but why don't they make SS nipples so you get something stronger and more durable instead of brass ? Just wondering :)Read More »

Need Help Selecting a Crankset for my Surly Stainless Steel 104x32t Chainring

Hello, I'm in the process of resurrecting a 2008 Haro Mary SS I got of Craigslist for $125.00. I picked up a gently used Surly Stainless Steel 4 bolt 104 bcd x 32t Chain-ring for it @ $20.00 bux as well. So now I need to find a crank-set that will allow me to use my chain-ring.

Why is it that most of the brake rotors I see that advertise the type of steel they use are stainless steel? Stainless steel has the worst thermal conductivity of almost any metal except titanium alloy. Aluminum is very good for thermal conductivity, but too soft to last, which is why shiman ...

Alchemy Stainless Steel 29er

I just finished building this rig up and got her a little dirty. I have been on titanium for nearly 20 years and I'm really liking the stiffness of the steel frame over the Ti and the weight is basically the same. This bike is going to have a long, hard life ahead of it. Just a few pics here.Read More »
