Bottom Bracket

Any one seen any good deals for a cheap BB for a set of XT 2x10 cranks to stick on my gyro?

Nothing fancy as I'm averaging 10 miles a year at the moment.

Lol, amazed you've managed to wear it out yet Wink Any Hollow Tech 2 one will fit, just make sure it's for a 68-73mm shell as 83mm won't fit. I think my current XT only cost about £20 from CRC, it was quite a long time ago surprizingly as i usually go through them pretty quick. I wouldn't get a Deore as my last one lasted one long weekend! Superstar are cheap too, and when the bearings wear out you can replace them easily wheras Shimano's aren't user servicable without a bit of butchery.

Cheers mate. I wish I could say I had worn it out but they were a second hand set of cranks and the BB was quite tired when I built the bike up.
