    bOTTOM BRACKET

    As you might know im getting some race face cranks ISIS, so i need a new bottom bracket, any recommendations. I want to get a good onr that will last. I dont have loads of money left, but i dont think money is too much of an object. Any ones youd recommend??

    I think RaceFace do a range of BB's. One is dead cheap, a couple are mid-range and a couple are really expensve. I'd go for the middle range one that has two sets of bearing in the drive side and one in the non-drive side. Costs about 45 over here. Might be worth a look at www.raceface.com and www.mtbr.com for some ideas and opinions .

    Update: Just had a quick look and the two mid-range ones are the Evolve XC and Evolve FR.

    FSA (Full Speed Ahead) and American Classic also make ISIS BB's.

    The AC is the less expensive of the two. Your LBS can order them.

    Don't forget, you need a special BB tool because Shimano's is different.

    Not very expensive. Less than $20. (maybe even less than $15.)Your LBS can order it. Park makes one, as do some others.
