Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.Rated 4 out of 5 by Delfazer Bottom crank Fitted this cartridge to replace the one that came with my carrera racer easy to fit and put copper grease on the threads and square cranks so they will be easier to remove next time.runs alot smoother now and under a tenner very happy. 23 August 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Nigel865 bike repair Easy to order and collect. good fitting instructions plus a good u tube explanation. 01 July 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by Roboprop Great product I am upgrading a 12 yr old Apollo MTB as my daily commuter and noticed a bit of play in the BB. Decided to change it out for an easier BB to service and maintain than the one that came fitted. The old one was a mare to remove but this screwed straight in cranks fitted with no problem. It's heavy but for an every day bike that I am not worried about weight on its perfect. When I need a new one again in the future il be buying it again. I opted for collect in store option which is great, service is perfect and I got a call after about an hour to let me know the order was waiting for me. 11 March 2016Rated 4 out of 5 by 123as Bracket Got it to put in a mk3 chopper it works better than the old bearing as I expect for the make and price was not happy with halfords as this order I made online but that bracket was broken so I got this one they made me pay full price I store as originally I ordered online to save a bit of coin so not happy 10 March 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by UKSkaliveson Perfect fit Fed-up with a squeak from my Subway I dismantled the gear and crank assembly. Turning the crank by hand showed rough bearings. This assembly is a quick way to overhaul the bottom bracket - you could replace just the bearings (2 x 6002RS) but with an assembly this good so cheap its better to go for the assembly. 20 September 2015Rated 5 out of 5 by Lowey1952 taper cartridge bottom bracket.
