Bottom Bracket Buying Guide

 

If you're looking to replace your bottom bracket, there are a few things you'll need to take into consideration. This guide will help you choose the right type of bottom bracket for your mountain bike or road bike.

There are three main types of bottom brackets: threaded, hollowtech, and press fit. threaded bottom brackets are the most common type, and they're compatible with most bikes. Hollowtech bottom brackets are typically found on higher-end bikes, and press fit bottom brackets are usually found on mid- to high-end mountain bikes.

Threaded bottom brackets:

Threaded bottom brackets are the most common type of bottom bracket. They're compatible with most bikes, and they're easy to install and remove. threaded bottom brackets are available in a variety of sizes, so you'll need to know the size of your bottom bracket shell before you buy one.

Hollowtech bottom brackets:

Hollowtech bottom brackets are typically found on higher-end bikes. They're lighter than threaded bottom brackets, and they offer a smoother pedaling experience. Hollowtech bottom brackets are more difficult to install and remove than threaded bottom brackets, so you'll need to make sure you have the right tools before you attempt to install one.

Press fit bottom brackets:

Press fit bottom brackets are usually found on mid- to high-end mountain bikes. They're similar to threaded bottom brackets, but they don't require threaded cups. Press fit bottom brackets are easy to install and remove, but they're not as compatible with all bike frames as threaded bottom brackets.

When you're choosing a bottom bracket, it's important to consider the type of bike you have and the type of riding you do.
