DA Bottom Bracket for Cross?(2 posts)

DA Bottom Bracket for Cross?Citius
Jun 19, 2001 4:48 AM
I am tweaking the cross bike in the off season and am thinking of switching from the current Ultegra bottom bracket to a Dura Ace bottom bracket mostly for weight savings. Am I asking for trouble going from a "sealed BB" to a "non-sealed" BB? Has anyone successfully run a DA bottom bracket for cross? I don't want to significantly increase my post ride maintenance.

have you read the reviews?aru

Be afraid, be very afraid. How about swapping out your shimano crank/BB for FSA carbon cranks with a Phil Wood magnium BB?
