F1 Ceramic bottom brackets are designed and built to be serviceable, durable and silent. The quality starts with our bearings. Made in the USA since 2003, using premium components, and built to order. Each part of the bearing is individually graded before building your bearing. This combination of quality, strength and reliability gives us the confidence to offer you a 7 year warranty.
There are two types of BB30 frames. Original BB30, where the bearings pressed directly into the frame and the newer PF30. Press Fit 30 (PF30) was created as an improvement over BB30 as BB30 bearings were known to click and creak as the tolerance of frames varied, allowing the bearing to move ever so slightly. Enter PF30, using their own cups, making the tolerance of the frame less important.
Be sure to order the proper BB30 kit for your frame. We make both (BB30 and PF30). This is for bottom bracket shells that have a 46mm ID.
This BB will also work on BB386 frames and BBright frames (specific BBright spacer needed, not included with our BB) using a 30mm spindle crank.
