I need your help. I have a 2002 Specialized Hotrock (see picture). It's in need of a new bottom bracket. I ordered this one:
I tried putting it in today, but as soon as I went to torque the cup on the fixed side, the cup broke off! I mean, they are aluminum, but I had literally just gotten the cup up against the frame, torqued it the smallest fraction of a turn when it blew off. So, as much as I would like to have aluminum cups, I think it'll be better to just get a BB with steel cups. The place I ordered it from has this one:
It's cheaper, but should get the job done. Maybe some of you guys know of something better? I don't need high end. This is my daily rider and I just need it to ride again without breaking the bank. I want something with steel cups, preferably. Thanks for your input.
