    Truvativ BB question

    Is a Truvativ Gigapipe BB an ISIS compatible BB? Their website isn't much help and I'm confused by the product description's statement that the Gigapipe "is a massive heat-treated CroMoly spindle" - does this mean that the splined portion is larger than ISIS or just that the center section is??

    The Truvative Gigapipe SL is ISIS: http://www.pricepoint.com/detail/15544-030_TRUSL6-3-Parts-48-Bottom-Brackets/Truvativ-Giga-Pipe-Team-SL-Bottom-Bracket-'07.htm

    I'm pretty sure the Gigapipe line is all ISIS.

    The phrase "is a massive heat treated CroMoly spindle" is tech talk from a marketing person.
