I have just picked up a used one of these with some Raceface cranks.

Can they be rebuilt if so how and where do you source the bearings?

Many thanks

If it is the rebuildable type then pop down to your local bearing shop and order the size you need. You will need to extract the bearings though and measure up first.

if you can knock a bearing off the axle then its game on if not its not :wink: last time i checked the gigapipe is not ment to be rebuild-able you can get the skf isis bb for cheap if you shop around and it'll last years and miles longer than the truvativ ones :wink:

I rebuilt mine using bearings & the press from work.

As far as I can tell, the bearings are a standard size but one side has an insert fitted.

Should only really cost £5 for the bearings.

Just re-read the post & mine is this type.

If you have the same type as square taper / Isis I'd buy a fresh bottom bracket.
