    RACE Face BB ?

    My LBS tells me I need a new BB for my RaceFace Evolve XC cranks. They say I have to get Race Face w/100mm shell. Is there a Shimano or FSA or another brand I can use? No one in the area seems to stock it (RF BB) and I want to get this thing done for the weekend.

    Thanks as always,
    BM

    raceface and shimano are completely interchangeable as long as you are talking about outboard bb's.

    Better off to rebuild the RF bottom bracket with Enduro Bearings, it will last longer.

    It's a Turner 6 Pack - does that make sense?
