    04 Coiler B.b Size???

    My stock B.B.(RACE FACE) keeps coming loose no matter what I do and I'm tired of messing with it What size B.B. do I need and what (if changed) B.B. are you using on your Coiler. I would like to stick with a RACE FACE splined , may be a better quality one. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I'm pretty sure it's 68 x 113

    But you may want to consult the kona website.

    As far as a good replacement, I've tried the FSA and the Truvativ Giga and both seemed to work better than the Race Face splined BB's that I've used. Long-term, I think everyone will go with outboard bearings. The splined interface is great in concept, but going with a bigger spindle means smaller bearings and that's just not a good thing for durability. While the square tapers had all sorts of issues, the bearings seemed to last 2x as long for me.

    The shell size is 68mm and the axle length, if being used with raceface cranks is 113mm. I use Raceface evolve FR ISIS bottom bracket with evolve DH cranks on my '04 coiler and so far so good.
