    Truvativ GXP Cups - Possible upgrades?

    The bearings in the non-drive side of my GXP are gone, can some body suggest some possible upgrade options that will work with my current chain set / axle. I know Hope do cups that work, but needs a conversion kit..

    Everything I have read and been told (since I do not have first hand experience) is that the Enduro GXP Bottom Brackets are the best for Truvativ/SRAM

    Chris King would be my choice. They now have a GXP compatable set.

    Order it from universalcycles.com - they will ship to the UK. The GXP bottom bracket is the same as the Shimano compatible, it just uses an adapter kit. I bet you could have the adapter kit shipped to you from king and get a standard BB locally.

    I guess the Hope adapters will work with the Chris King cups ?????

    Since you live in the UK you should be able to get a Hope BB and converter pretty easily. It's a huge upgrade over stock, and much cheaper than a King BB.
