    Savior for ISIS on the way?

    In the Velonews 2004 buyer's guide there is a Truvativ ad that shows a road crankset and their Giga <b>X</b> Pipe BB. It has the outboard bearings a la Shimano and looks to have ISIS interface (no info or pics on Trivativ's website). Could this be what ISIS users have been waiting for?

    I've been waiting for a Phil Wood ISIS bottom bracket. :-)

    not sure if it'll fit other brands' isis cranks. Interloc came out with their outboard bearings ISIS crankset and bb, but it's not compatible with other ISIS cranksets already on the market.

    Other than spindle length and chainline issues, I can't see any major reason why it would not work..... who's gonna be the guinea pig?

    Outboard bearing BBs for '04 were a common theme at Interbike last fall. Seemed like everybody had one to offer.

    That's the nice thing about standards...there are so many to choose from!

    spindle length is probably the problem. the cranks might bottom out against the bearing before they do the actual splined interface.

    you would think a mtb version is on the horizon, no?

    Foe what its worth...
    IRC has an ISIS BB with outboard bearings for MTBs. It's not available yet but should be soon. My LBS has seen a prototype and it would appear that standard ISIS cranks won't fit, a newer "lower profile" crank will be required.
