  • The Chris King bottom bracket is specifically designed for Shimano-compatible external type crank/bottom bracket systems and delivers every benefit you've come to expect from King and in the wide array of colors only King can do.
  • An available grease injection tool allows the bearings to be purged of existing grease and debris and new grease run through. What better way to maximize the life of your bearings than to do routine maintenance? Especially when it's this easy.
  • Racers take note! With the Chris King bottom bracket and injection tool, you can train day-to-day with a durable high-viscosity grease and race with a light, fast-rolling low-viscosity grease or oil. Imagine your current Friday night leg-shaving ritual finishing with a few minutes in the garage to get your bike as smooth as you are.
  • MTB version fits 68 or 73mm shells
  • Road version fits 68mm only
  • All bottom brackets are english thread
  • Use Standard for Shimano, Race Face, and some Full Speed Ahead cranksets.
  • Use Sram for Sram and Truvativ cranksets

Spins and looks beautiful. I have it in my cyclocross bike and it is holding up like a champ despite some really gnarley conditions. It feels like it could last forever.

Pros: Spins great, high quality, comes in lots of colors.

Cons: Expensive, but totally worth it.

The King

Just bought my second one for a 29er build as the one I got for my 26" has been set it and forget it for over a year now. Used the grease tool once, and the old grease was still in great condition.

Pros: set it and forget it

Cons: $$

This is the best bottom bracket on the market hands down, So far I have about 500 miles on it and it shows no sign of giving up. Time will tell, but it's built just like their head sets (which I currently run) and they rock.

Pros: The best, bullit proof

Cons: high cost

Maybe i did something wrong but when greasing it (with CK tool) the seal came out and I had to take it apart and put back together. Seal is not depicted on schematics thus I assumed where it went. Email to CK tech dept remains unanswered (2 months)

Pros: Looks great

Cons: If I wanted to take apart by BB I would have bought a cheapo.

Best Bottom Bracket Ever

Having been through 4 XTR bottom bracket bearings in 5 years I finally ponied up and bought a Chris King and the optional grease fitting. This combo makes it easy to grease and keep clean.

Pros: Easy maintenance with the King grease fitting, Smooth, Sexy

Cons: None

Do you really need to say anything more than the name? When Chris King came out with these, it was a no-brainer for me. Never had a single problem with my headsets or hubs.

Pros: Chris King precision
grease injection accessory

Excellent BB. It comes w/ pretty much everything you need for installation. The bearing do take about 110 miles to break in fully. During that time it's best to check to see if the your crank needs to be tightened at regular intervals. Instructions are not great though. I have the road version and when installing Sram Force crank on a 68mm BB, I needed both the silver 1/8" spacer on the non-drive side to tighten down upon initial installation and then after the bearing have set in, I needed 2 of the plastic 1/16" spacers on the drive side to get it torqued to specs properly. Since then...smooth as butter!

If you know Chris King, then you will not be surprised by their bottom bracket. The machining & anodization are perfect, the bearings roll better than any external bottom bracket I have seen save for ceramics. The extra grease port tool is perfection, extending the life of this part beyond other externals & just goes to show you how all encompassing Chris King is as a company.

Pros: Performance
Maintenance with extra tool
Details

Cons: None

These are So GOOD that i've bought them for all 3 of my bikes. They go together well, are Very High Quality with Excellent Precision machining and threads, as you would expect from a CK product.
Its nice that the bearings are Easily serviceable, with a little maintenance, there is no telling how long of these might last... get the Matching CK Installation and Grease tools too, they are worth having since you would likely have this BB for a VERY LONG TIME.

Pros: Ultra High Quality, Easily Serviceable bearings, could last for a Decade or more!

Cons: NONE that i can find! Yes, Its a little pricey but not if you average out over the MANY years you will be using it. You will NOT be throwing these parts away in 6 months like many other BB i have had.

Love it

After about 500 miles, this thing spins like nothing I have ever used before. Add to this user-servicability and an absurdly long warranty for a bottom bracket, and you have a winning combo. USA made to boot. If you are sick of demolishing FSA bottom brackets every few thousand miles, this is the one to check out.

Pros: Spins great, user-servicable, and top-notch fit and finish. No installation problems (using the Park tool). It's really nice to not worry about the BB bearing dying on me any more.

Cons: Expensive, especially when you factor in the grease injection tool. It will take a lot of years and miles for this investment to pay off, but so far so good.

Chris King through and through

This BB is the best you can find. Get the tools with it which will make install and maintenance a snap and good luck picking a color.

Pros: Craftmanship is top notch, cleaning is quick and simple.

Cons: Hard to convince yourself to shell out dough for a component you get "free" with most cranksets these days. I did and am happy I did.

Aboslutly the best!

How can you have a fine bike like that and still be using the BB that came with the crankset!

Invest in the basics. A good BB, Headset, wheelset are fundamental!
And they discount it.

Lasts forever too, you will notice the difference right away

Get the tools!!

Pros: Its the best, easily servicable, well made, beautifully machined, and machined spacers. Its Chris King.

Cons: Difficult to decide on a color.

The Best

You get what you pay for and more. This BB will last the lifetime of several bikes as long as you give it the minimal amount of maintenance that it will require. Absolutely no comparison to pretty much anything else out there. Shimano (read this as any Shimano BB including XTR) does not even come close.

Pros: Silky smooth, serviceable, will outlast cheap XTR and other Shimano products by years and years.

Cons: Grooves in the BB cups are set far back which allow limited engagement with my cup tool (and probably most except the CK tool). Scratched the finish before I even rode it (see cons). Not a big deal but I know I will have this BB for a long long time.

Great bottom bracket. Install was a snap with the King tool. Mates up with my Force crank perfectly and spins like a champ. Bearings are really smooth, and being user serviceable is a big bonus.

Pros: Lots of colours to match your bike/mood

Really well made
