    BB91-41 BB Road or MTB??

    Hi guys,

    I'm about to order a Kona King Kahuna with a BB92 bottom bracket and I'm wondering if this bottom bracket here is compatible. The description says it should work but in the picture you can clearly see it says "road".

    Can anybody help me out?

    Why don't you just go to your LBS and have them order the right one and install it. The $10 or so you will save from ordering it online will be gone if it's the wrong one.

    I had a similar experience with Trek's. The road BB has the full plastic shell, the MTB merely has bearings. The designation is BB91 and 92 respectively. Who knows whether your BB will need the shell or just bearings until you get the frame in front of you.

    I definitely need the bb with the shell. I'm just a little confused because this bb says "road" right on it. I wasn't aware that there was a road version...

    This would save me about $40.
