    Replacement BB for Canfield cranks?

    What BB type fits Canfield cranks?

    I tried to install a GXP BB and the small flat washer/dust cover that covers the drive side bearing was too small to slide over the axle.

    The description on Canfield’s site says “GXP style BB included”.

    The base level sram gxp has always been fine for me... typically lasts 12-15 months, cheap and easy to change.

    What's over that wave-washer used with sram GXP bbs?

    Canfield bb does not need it as duster seal holds firmly in place, so canfield cranks not equipped with that.


    Changing to original gxp means someone need to get that washer somewhere.

    2nd: had anyone dismantled canfield bb and replaced bearings?

    The GPX BB is the replacement for the stock Canfield BB. The cranks pinch the non drive side bearing so the drive side just floats. The washer from Canfield is to fine tune the chainring spacing. The wave washer (shown above) just takes up space without tensioning anything.
