At Zero Friction Cycling we are often amazed at how many high end race bikes come in switching to waxing or getting a race chain installed that are running stock Bottom Bracket bearings that one could buy online $30 to $50. Perfectly serviceable yes, fast – NO! Again some easy watts savings here and it doesn’t have to break the bank.
HSC provide an excellent upgrade options for those who want to step things up a lot from stock bearings but not break the bank in doing so. They are also fantastic for me to get hold of stock in a hurry.
Another great feature for HSC is that often we can find one bearing in a BB or wheel is running rough but the others are fine. For wheel bearings we can order just one bearing, or two, or three etc, and for some BB’s I can also order in just one bearing for the side that is no good, and we can maintain the bearing still running well.
