$25.00$220.00

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.

Contact me to discuss all pricing options and installation!

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 not so good, and we can maintain the bearing still running well.

HSC BB’s range from $115 to $220. Individual bearings for wheels / BB range from $25 to $110.

Due to the current 4.7 billion bottom bracket standards (and then there are wheel hubs….) We are not listing all the options here.

To purchase bearings please contact me on –  info@zerofrictioncycling.com.au , and I will email an invoice which you can pay via EFT / Credit Card or Paypal. If purchasing bearings with an online order for other ZFC goodies you will get a 5% discount on bearings for purchases under $100 and a 10% discount on bearings with purchases over $100.

Please follow link to HSC website to find your specific bearing and RRP. If you need assistance finding out what BB your need don’t hesitate to contact me for assistance – to help I will need to know;

  1. Frame model and year (if you have bb shell width that helps)
  2. Crank – i.e shimano, gxp, Rotor 30mm, 386evo, FSA.
  3. As much hub information as possible if it is for wheels – model, year etc – sometimes pics help too.

For wheel bearings – Note your freehub bearings are always rotating over the axle same as main bearings, not just when freewheeling. If you upgrade main bearings but leave in crappy free hub bearings – it -is not as good an upgrade…

**TIME TRIAL GREASE UPGRADE**

Remember we also offer Time Trial Grease upgrade where I ultrasonically clean out the factory grease and replace with Ceramic Speed TT grease – the fastest grease ever tested (it changes properties under pressure to become like a light oil).

Contact to discuss suitability for your needs – requires regular top up maintenance and I adjust fill level depending on intended use / maintenance – but if you want the fastest race bike, between switching to waxing, YBN chain, bearing and grease upgrade – your bike will match the best prepped bikes in the pro peleton!
