Token Ninja BB.

Postby flex5150 » Thu May 31, 2018 6:27 pm

Anyone used one or a similar threadfit style BB.
I have a creaky BB86 and want to eliminate it. The Token sounds great if you buy the marketing just looking for some real world reviews.
Frame is a BMC SLR 01 2015 bb86 running a GXP Quarq Red.

thanks

Hiya,

I looked into a variety of different ones, but I was looking to fit a BB386 crank into a BB30 frame, but a list of the suppliers that I looked at are below. Note the comments are for the BB30 crank, the availability and options for Shimano/GPX cranks

C-Bear : do a BB-BB30-386-R (ceramic bearings) for RRP of Euro 129, but haven't found a supplier yet
HSC - No options
Praxis Works - No Options
Wheels Mfg - No Options
Tri peak - do a Steel bearing (BB30-386-PKSBTF12) for A$178 delivered & a Ceramic (BB30-386-PKCBTF12) for A$225 delivered via eBay
Wishbone - do a Ceramic (BB30386) for A$178 delivered via eBay
F1 Ceramics - No Options
Torq Tite (Enduro Bearings) - Euro250 + tools + shipping from Bike 24
Kohler is USD $199 + shipping,
B.B.Infinite is out of stock of the one I need, and list price is US $205.


I didn't end up using any, as the frame ended up having a crack, as the replacement frame was BSA68.


From the discussions that I had on the WW board, there is good support for the threaded ones. Can't remember exactly which ones they were, but most in the above list are screw together (I've removed the ones that I know aren't).

I just solved my latest creak (I think) by replacing my 5 year old DA pedals that were badly worn.

Thanks.. creaks can occur in many places as we know. I changed skewers , wheels, seatpost, saddle, pedals, cranks ... BB is my last resort and im pretty sure is the culprit. thanks for the heads up Ill take a look at WW
