    Chin haur or Shimano bottom bracket?

    Hi.
    My bottom bracket (Shimano UN 52) got some problems and I want to replace ıt. The problem is that I'm in Istanbul and can't fınd a Shimano UN 54.

    So I have to choose between a Chin Haur CH 51-70 and a Shimano UN 26.

    Since I'm on my way India with my bike I really need a good bottom bracket, so which one is the best of the ones I mentioned?

    And if anybody knows where I can fınd a UN 54 in Istanbul please tell me.

    Take care

    Shipped out of England Perhaps? There are a few UK shops
    that ship internationally as a matter of course.
    Wiggle, Chain Reaction, SJS,

    Not really knowledgeable about the bearing set inside each of those 2 you mentioned.
    Belt and Braces, get both , put one in the luggage to replace the other if failure happens.

    China has a Space launch and Nukes , so are mechanically competent,
    now whether the bottom line of profit over rode QC in the parts , is another issue,
    beyond the scope of a low level forum.

    I would get the Shimano. I have experieince with both Shimano and lesser-known Chinese bottom brackets, and I have seen both fail, but the 'non-Shimano' ones certainly fail more often.
