    Middleburn/SKF love...

    First set of Middleburns for me, but my third SKF bottom bracket. I love these SKF BBs, damn near indestructible. I've got one that is two years old and still very buttery smooth. I can't wait to get this set on my new build in the next couple of weeks.

    $339 shipped for everything in the picture...

    Same place as the cranks, mtbtandems.com

    They import directly from SKF. They always have some in stock here in the US, hard to say of any other retailer.

    I have an SKF BB on my singlespeed. That thing is solid. I was running through BBs pretty quickly before I got that thing. I'm looking at getting a Middleburn RS7 Uno setup as well (currently running RF Turbines). Let us know how that works out for you.

    Very nice... Middleburn are 11 miles down the road from where I live, but I don't think you can pop in and visit - shame really. Nice cranks : )

    Good to know! My oldest is a BFR-300, newer is a BFR-600, and the yet to be installed is the BXC-600. I must say the lighter, thinner spindle walls of the BXC series does worry me a little bit, considering I'm a clyde. I guess I'll find out if it holds up.

    Good choice, Madcap. I'm loving my Middleburn Duo RS7 29x42ts. Definitely gotta loctite the three chainring bolts and the spider. Other than that I couldn't be happier.

    I thought about completing the set and getting MB arms but they
    weigh more then XT's .

    339 gms according to mtbtandems website. That's the BFR version. 295 for the XC model. I have the FR600 one sitting at home and that sucker is not light. I'm selling it, new, never used (installed and immediately removed when I realized it was the FR version) if anyone's interested. And yes, I did buy an ad.
