Token Products Trek BB90 BB3724

Token products sent me an email and a video describing their product that is suppose to eliminate the problems of rrunnin trek bn90 and 95 . Check it out let me know what you think. They say they reduced the od so it will fir . Let me know your thoughts , if you run bb90 it could be a decent option .

The original Trek BB90/BB95 just press a bearing (OD 37mm / ID 24mm) into the frame. To make it become thread together type, we have to make the bearing OD smaller, so we could keep the cup OD 37mm.

Maybe that's what Trek's going to announce next Tuesday.

Looks very much like one of the Wheels Mfg thread together bottom brackets. It's nice that someone finally made one for a Trek. Don't know what they sell for but the only issue I see here is if you can't replace the bearings because of their smaller OD, and if they don't sell replacement bearings, you're stuck having to buy a new bottom bracket. And with that comes the issue that if their bearings aren't that good, you'll be replacing them more than you would like to.

All bearings are replaceable. None of these companies are getting special one off bearings made for them in the relatively small quantities they use.
You just need to get them from bearing or industrial suppliers not bike part suppliers.

While all bearings are replaceable, where you get them from is another issue. While in most cases you can get them from the places you state, some companies make their own bearings and the only place you can get them is through them. I have a set of jockey wheels where this is true. The company makes their own bearings. I have also run into this problem outside of cycling. I don't know anything about the Token bottom bracket but if they use bearings that can be purchased through normal channels, I would have to wonder why companies like Wheels Mfg, BB Infinate and Praxis, among a few, that make thread-together and modular bottom brackets haven't come up with one for Trek bikes long ago.

I'm glad that someone finally came up with a replacement bottom bracket for Trek that doesn't rely on press fitting since they have had a black eye in that category for quite a while. I wished I would have known about this company sooner as it would have saved my buddy from having to send his frame to Trek to redo the BB shell as the oversized bearings they used to repair his BB are now worn out.
