    what ceramic bottom bracket to use

    Hi,i need help in finding the right bottom bracket for my crankarm.I am using a raceface Atlas crankarms which ar x-type(?).Does this mean i cannot use shimano type bottom brackets?
    I was palnning to buy a chris King BB but the catalogue spec indicates that its for shimano only.
    Any other BB l can try?Hope does not indicate if it is compatible for raceface.l plan to upgrade to ceramic bearings.

    thanks

    X-type is compatible w/shimano, many people here use shimano BB's with RF cranks. I'm pretty sure you can buy Ceramic BB's from enduro, whether or not ceramic is worth the cost over high end metal bearings is a whole other issue...

    Token Ceramic BB are cheap in their category. I don't have complaints with both of mine.
    Check out my SportTracks plugins for some training aid software.
