So, my Exocet2 has a BB30 and I have had various issues with it over the years. The latest one looks a bit more terminal. The non-drive side bearing is loose in the cup…it is actually stuck to the spindle at the moment .
I didn’t have time to do much to it, so put it back with some loctite 641 on the bearing shell. This lasted a couple of turbo sessions but it is now clicking and creaking badly again, which I am sure is gradually making things worse.
All my existing cranks are BB30 including power meter, so quite heavily invested in it .
Possible options I could think of:
- You can get some slightly oversize (+0.02mm) bearings, these were to resolve similar issues on trek bikes. This has a reasonable chance of working I think and only about £30 from US.
- Bbinfinite do a single insert thing which claims to fix all these issues and maintains the BB30 compatibility. Bit pricier at around £200 I think
- New (to me) frame or new bike
Anyone had any experience of BBInfinite? It looks similar to Hambini, except the Hambini converts to 24mm spindle.
