    pugs bb

    botton brackets


    hi guys - I know I will need a 100mm bb for a pugsley - I have a good FSA carbon crankset lying around - but its an octalink - can I get an octalink bb 100mm to mate it with?

    No. Square taper or Isis only.
    My video techniques can be found in this thread.

    If you use ISIS cranks, go for the FSA

    Mine is still doing fine after a season of mud, and at ~230-250 lb, I (used to) break everything. Certainly the quality could be variable, but it seems like a good design. The design does seem to depend on the bb shell length/spacer combo being perfect... If your shell plus spacer plus etype bracket stack is the slightest bit too long, it would ruin the bearings in short order. I had to face my shell a hair to make the provided spacer the right thickness.

    the Ti spindle version is straight with spindle collars, meaning you can use it with a 100 mm shell, and with a long spindle, it will just be better supported (last longer, be a little stiffer) than in a 68 or 73mm shell, but otherwise function the same.

    I picked up a Race Face JIS square taper on E Bay. I'm using a Kooka Crank on Fat Back and used both on a Pugs before that.
