    Rated 4 out of 5 by Good alternative I wanted a Shimano bb, the default reliable choice, but could only get this one quick on click and collect. I know VP make decent pedals and everything about this bb suggests it's a decent choice too. Long term reliability is an unknown as it's only been a couple of weeks but the bearings are smooth, finish is high quality and it went in very easily. Comes with cranks bolts (not the allen key type), not with lockring so keep the old one. It made me wonder if you actually need it, but I'm pretty sure you do. 02 August 2015
    Rated 5 out of 5 by New Bottom bracket - worth every penny Fitting was simple and replacing this part has made a huge difference to my bike's performance. If you are wondering if your bike needs a replacement, then it probably does! Worth purchasing a bottom bracket spanner and crank remover spanner at the same time to make fitting easy. Too early to rate product on longevity, but for the price even if it needed replacement every 6 months it's not exactly breaking the bank! 14 November 2014
    Rated 4 out of 5 by Super Advise from staff member great a dice given from bikehut staff, great product for price. thanks again for staff advice. 08 May 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Bottom Bracket This Bottom Bracket appears to be well made and is constructed with mud seals to protect the bearings. It fitted well and so far I have cycled over twenty miles on off road hills and very muddy conditions. The bearing feels perfect and it performs as it should it is hard to say how long it will last only time will tell however it is well below a third of the cost of most branded products and comes at a bargain price. 19 April 2013

Some of the parts we sell here at Halfords have been reconditioned. These will carry a Refundable Deposit or an extra surcharge amount. When you add one of these reconditioned items to your basket, we'll add this extra cost automatically.

Once you've sent us your old item we'll check it over, and then refund you the full surcharge as long as everything is ok.

Before you return your old unit please make sure it's in re-serviceable condition. So if you're returning caliper casings, you'll need to double check they aren't badly damaged or broken. If the part you've sent is found to be unserviceable, we reserve the right not to refund the surcharge.

Please note that if you're returning your old unit to our National Returns Centre then this will be at your own expense.
