    BB for my Ripley

    I'm currently planning my Ripley build, it will generally be Shimano XT setup however i'm curious as to what choices I have available to me for the bottom bracket.

    So far I've only found race face BB that say they are Shimano XT compatible.

    Do you folks have any other suggestions? and or preference?

    Thanks

    Exx

    Chris King PressFit bottom brackets are finally shipping. Pricey, but the Ripley deserves it!

    This is the one I bought. I've had a number of BB's from RWC over the years and they are always top notch. A lot cheaper than the CK version, and quality is on par. Much nicer than Shimano's version for about the same price.

    I may be mistaken but I'm pretty sure CK is only doing PF30...not BB92. I actually called them a couple of months ago and the guy I spoke to told me only PF30 for now but that may change

    Yeah, the link states PF30 only, but as stated above you can run the shimano bb92 with shimano cranks (obviously). BB92 is Shimano's baby anyway.

    Understood. I was just trying to point out that at this point in time King is not a viable option (since the OP looked to be searching for other possible options). Hopefully that will change in the future

    I was in 100% agreement with you.
