MegaExo bottom brackets offer greater bearing life versus older Isis or Octalink bottom brackets. The ball bearings are 40% larger than most ISIS Drive BB's for greater strength and longevity. Furthermore, the bearings are spaced wider apart for an overall increase in the stiffness of the bottom bracket/crankset interface.

Q: I have a santa cruz blur and currently have a shimano slx crank set. Will this be compatible with the bike and crank set I have
A: Yes, this bottom bracket is interchangeable with your Shimano Hollowtech II bottom bracket.
Q: I have a 2012 Specialized epic comp with SRAM S-1250 crank. Current bottom bracket is a GXP. Will this FSA bottom bracket work with this SRAM crank? Thanks
A: This BB is not intended for SRAM but for its cousin Shimano. To be used on 24mm spindles as listed in the information.
Q: Is this bottom bracket the correct choice for a 2009 Specialized Tricross Expert Double. It uses a FSA SL-K MegaExo, 2-piece carbon crankset. Thanks for your help.
A: If you are running the stock crankset, which has a 24mm spindle, this bottom bracket should work fine with that particular frame.
Q: Hi, will this bracket work with this bike? http://www.gtbicycles.com/usa_en/2014/bikes/road/performance/2014-tachyon-3-0 Thanks.
A: In order to confirm compatibility we would need to know more about your drivetrain. Please contact customer service for more information.
Excellent bottom bracket. My road bike was originally equip with the FSA bottom bracket and I put over 3000 miles on it before bearings started showing signs of wear. So did not even consider another type bracket. Installed quickly without any issues.
