Enduro is finalizing their new PF30 and PF86/92 threaded bottom brackets, looking to solve two of the biggest problems with pressfit setups.
They’re still pressed into the frame, but the alloy shell is stiffer and once pressed in, you thread it together lightly to cinch it tight. That eliminates any play, which causes those annoying creaks and groans, and ensures proper alignment, which extends bearing life and reduces drag.
The smaller one uses a standard Shimano BB tool. The bigger one uses their own tool, which also has teh Shimano size on the other end. They’re not sure yet of the tool will be included, but they’ll try to make it cheap if not. They’re also considering making it work with the Rotor BB tool, but not sure if the thinner wall on their BB will work properly with only 12 indents.
Should be available end of September with pricing similar to their other bottom brackets.
Shown in gold is their new Cannondale HollowGram crankset removal tool that combines the usual two parts into a single tool.
The other parts are a new adapter for Rotor Rex BBs that need a half pin to fit. Note the pins on the adapter are cut in half compared to the round pins on the base piece.
One of the more clever solutions we saw are these new Enduro Custom bits, which converts BB86/92 into BB30 by pressing bearings directly into the frame with no shell. Each side uses double row bearings in either stainless steel or ceramic.
