    Cheap replacement for raceface evolve XC bottom bracket?

    Hey all


    Had my cranks replaced earlier this season to the raceface evolve XC with externall BB. The BB is on its way out with creaks and tics.

    Now I hear the LX/XT is a better cheper alternative but im just wondering if they will fit my cranks? I have a feeling they do but I am not 100% sure.

    any suggestions welcome.

    or just rebuild the BB and press new bearings into it. I put enduro bearings in mine (took about 20 min to swap them out if you are creative.

    Outboard Bearing Bottom Bracket Service Guide. With Pics.

    You may also check this out, its pretty easy to remove the bearing seals and repack with grease. This would be the cheapest route.
