So as usual winter has killed my bottom bracket :roll:

BB is original PF92 - press fit 92mm, version for SRAM GXP (24mm axle tapering down to 22mm),

I don’t want to fit the same, wondered what other are using?

I want to be able to replace the bearings without ha big to fit a whole new bottom bracket as from experience I have to replace bearings minimum of once a year (or more often depending on how wet the summer is).

Options are:

Hope PF41 - expensive, need tool and adaptors, approx £150

Wheels MFG screw in approx £60

Just after recommendations or other options, thanks :D

    I replaced the push fit BB on my Trance with a Wheels Manufacturing Thread Together jobbie and it has been excellent. No creaking and the bearings are still smooth after 12 months of use in all conditions.
