Hi guys. Being a bit lazy here but I’m after suitable replacements for my Boardman FS Pro MTB (blue/yellow, 2016). I need a bottom bracket (or full 1x crankset) and also a rear hub. Would like to upgrade from original spec, anyone advise what i could purchase?

    I was thinking of going 1 times instead of the 2x10 on my 2017 Team FS, it's a right job trying to get a 38t chainring to suit. Could try Halfords? then again maybe not. :#

    Haven’t bothered with Halfords but bloody Boardman haven’t replied to my query in a week.

    The bottom bracket and crankset are two different components - which do you actually need?
    If it's just the BB then you need a PF30.

    What is wrong with your rear hub?

    Thanks JBA. Need both components, bearings shot to bits (on both). Lots of play on cranks through BB and lots also on rear wheel through the hub.

    So just replace the BB and the bearings in the rear hub. No need to go to the expense of a new can set and rear hub + wheel build or new wheel.
