trying to understand bottom brackets
The last time I was really into mtb's all you had was a square tapered bb..
whats the difference/benifits of a spline drive bb and whats called a x pipe?
what different types of bottom brackets are there?
my bike orignally used a 73mm english 113mm length bb..
if I wanted to upgrade my base model cranks to something like this..
only the ones i saw are in silver and called the Ride XC, but have the same overall look.
I suppose the spline drive or octalink is what I'm looking for?
whats this outside bearing stuff I see listed all about?
lots of questions, eh?
I ask these because i couldn't find what I was looking for here on on the rest of the net.
heck, if you know of a site that can break it down n00b style, forward it onto here please.
