    Wink XTR M960 BB compatible with Raceface Deus crank?

    My Raceface X-type BB wears out, I want to change a new one, but it's hard to find at my place. So I just want to ask does the Shimano XTR M960 BB compatible with the raceface Deus XC crankset? Thanks for help!

    It should be since I have used Race Face BBs on Shimano HT2 cranks without issues.

    Yes...

    and I think that the Shimano bearings last a little longer.

    I am currently running both.. I have had no issues with either, but I do take them apart and repack them every season or 2.

    Servicing Shimano bearings

    Gasp... you take apart the BB, ignoring the sticker on there that says not to?? I bet you go around ripping tags off of mattresses too, you rebel.

    I've heard it can be a challenge to get the seals out without damaging them - any tricks you've learned? Is the XTR BB enough nicer that the XT to make it worth upgrading?

    Thx, Jim

    These are better than Shimano or RaceFace...

    It is quite ok... You can take a look at this thread by Hecubus for instructions

    I would keep to the XT BB, I guess the only real difference is the color...
