In the absence of a response from somebody more tech savvy,  i seem to recall they do but you might need some adaptor type bits. Laggingbehind will know as it is he who i spoke to about this back when i had a Sram crankset.

Eh, I can't remember that....but as far as I know if it uses a external BB then a standard Hope one should be ok as they don't do variants but as Mr Blackers mentioned some like the Truvativ do need reducer adapters on the non drive side

Depends what sort of spindle is on the crank. If its a GXP spindle then yes it should fit, if its a BB30 spindle then no - but if you've currently got a non BB30 frame don't get that a BB30 crank, obviously  Smile

Yes,but you need an adaptor thingy (crc have then) to run GXP cranks with a hope bb. Should be about £7.
I have SRAM Gxp cranks on my asr5 and was thinking about a hope ceramic bb. But, the SRAM cranks are fine, the SRAM bb is fine so,until either die, they will stay. But I have a spare xt set of cranks and two pairs of shimano bbs. So,can't really justify the hope yet.

Btw, have a Chris king bb on my yeti arc and don't rate it at all. Needed regressing after 4 (winter) months. May go on for ever, but reckon hope ceramic is the way to go Smile

Suprised you had problems. Ive had one for about 18 months now and its still perfect, never touched it in that time either. Its done a good few wet welsh rides and a good number of soggy Surrey ones too so plenty of sand and grit flying around and its smoother than a babys bum!

Very good article here that explains the relative merits of ceramic bearings etc

Think I'll stick with plain steel for the moment...
