Ever wondered why your expensive crankset comes with a flimsy plastic preloader? Perhaps not. But, for those of you that have, it may be because you’ve had the misfortune of discovering it snapped at the location where the hex bolt threads in. Now, you can swap it out for a rather more durable CNC-machined aluminum crankset preload adjuster from Kogel.

Kogel Crankset Preload Adjuster

Kogel is offering SRAM DUB and 30mm spindle BB users the opportunity to add a little more bling to their bikes. Though bling isn’t the main objective here, it is nevertheless a major attraction of this new aluminum crankset preload adjuster.

In addition to the fact that they look quite nice, the more durable aluminum preloaders should give you a little more peace of mind if you’re concerned about the plastic preloader adjuster that came stock on your Race Face, Easton, or SRAM crankset. 

Pricing & Availability

Aluminum crankset preload adjusters are available direct from Kogel now for SRAM DUB 28.99mm spindles and 30mm spindles. $34.99 gets you the crank preloader, aluminum thread, and spacer rings, and a 2.5mm titanium hex bolt. You can customize your preloader choosing from five colorways, with a choice of seven different colors of titanium bolt.

Learn more at Kogel.cc, and check the price at Amazon.com.

Think these would work on the White Industries 30mm cranks as well? That 1.5 mm bolt they come with is…. a pain

They’re not that bad, given you have a quality tool. The same applies for any cranks with a collar, since the fastener is always small. I’m using 2 sets of those cranks and the preload adjuster works fine. Here’s what I use:

Speaking of plastic things that should be alloy, can Kogel (or anyone) make me a metal bleed funnel cup for Shimano brake levers?
