Scott CR1 2006 - BB Thread?

Postby JustJames » Tue Dec 04, 2012 2:29 pm

Hello my Imaginary Friends

I have a 2006 Scott CR1, and I am considering giving it a new crankset and BB for Christmas.

Trouble is, I've never heard the BB talking, so I don't know what language would be appropriate - English or Italian?

Anybody know?

Thanks

James

Tallyho James.

Currently a standard FSA crank (not sure of model) with 53/39 and MegaExo.

Contemplating a 53/39 Gossamer also with MegaExo.

I spin WAY more than I grind, so it can only help.

Just remember to keep a nice, even pressure on your crank.
I'm more of a spinner, myself. Once learnt, never forgotten.
