The ITL Threaded bottom bracket has been designed to fit frames where the threading is in Italian style such as Pinarello. The cups contain 24mm bearings which will support 24mm cranksets such as Shimano and FSA, but can be used with a 22/24mm crankset such as the SRAM GXP.
There are 3 different bearing choices to best meet your needs:
- Standard Bearings: Use for road bikes in dry/no salt environments.
- Full Stainless Steel Bearings: Use for extreme distance riding (>200miles/week), BMX, MTN, Cycle cross, and other varying conditions.
- Full Stainless Steel Bearings with CX Seals: The CX seal is for riding conditions where water, dust, and debris can get into the bearing and degrade it prematurely. Use for MTN, BMX, Cycle Cross, or other wet and dirty conditions. NOTE: This is not for timed road biking as the extra seal slightly increases wattage.
NOTE: For 22/24mm SRAM/Truvativ cranks you will need to select the SRAM option on the crank menu.
NOTE: For BMX cranks that use a 19mm spindle, road cranks with a 19mm spindle, and the FSA omega you will need our 19mm bushing kit which is sold separately.
