Super cool that you show how to do this, most BB manufacturers say not to remove the seals so good to know that is BS

Hi Ceramicspeed, two questions. (1) Is there a specific reason you omit in your explanation the possibility of using TT grease in the bottom bracket? (2) Where can I buy replacement bearing seals for all your products? This includes the jockey wheels? I prefer to have a replacement seal ready in the unfortunate event one of the seals gets bent (did not happen so far, but I like to be on the safe side!).

Hello Ceramicspeed, i have your BB non coated in my supersix evo, it only 2 months old and now its creaking and cracking a lot, for less than 200km, i removed the crank, and i can feel the bearing is not so smooth with my finger. Is this normal for just a few clean ride? And how to open the cover to service it? The crank is sram force axs dub 12 speed. Thanks.

Actually, how long does ceramic bearing last?
For the BB and the wheelset bearing(nsw 454)?

When I do this the crank spins freely until I put the dust covers back on; at that point they (plus the grease) are causing a significant amount of resistance as they rotate with the crank. I can barely get one free revolution out of them. Am I missing something?

Can i use "finish line ceramic grease" for greasing my cs bb bearing? Is the recommended fill rate is still 60%?

How do you remove the dust covers on the Colnago BB? The covers go across the face and inside the bearing. There is nothing on your site that says how to do this, you do show how to do it on the flat type (old Version) but not the new improved version that you mention.

How often would you recommend doing this ?

Me parece que le falta limpieza, creo que retirando la pieza se puede hacer una limpieza más a fondo

Is this the same process for the T45 bb. I can’t see how you remove the seals

Author — David Vas


Can you use something like Muc Off cleaner or similar cleaner/degreaser?
