    ISIS im sure of it
  • FSA and RaceFace(Yes I know they do censored hollowtechII ones but there ISIS are ok) do ok ISIS ones for the price. But I would recommend spending a little more and getting a SKF.

    Will i notice an improvement on a more expensive one?
  • Not really as such as they feel much of a muchness. The problem was the hole ISIS system was some what flawed with bearing failure & axle shearing common place. But SKF made it work. After fitting a SKF one to my jump bike and it lasting more than 6 months I fitted one to my DH bike and my old XC bike. I never had another ISIS bottom bracket fail.
