Reasons to go for the upgrade Usually if both chainrings and the bottom bracket are worn out, you might as well upgrade to the new setup rather than buy all the parts for your old unit.

What kind of bottom bracket does a FSA bb-4000 use?

What’s the difference between Shimano and FSA BBS?

Bearing in mind that FSA BBs are very expensive and not that highly regarded I was wondering if there were any alternatives out there? The sizing is quite odd, whilst it sits on a conventional 68mm BB shell the bore is 19mm as opposed to the more common 24mm and 30mm employed by Shimano and BB30.

Why is the bore 19mm on a FSA bb-1000?

The 19mm bore is because the end seal actually sits in the bearing, its like a top hat shape. The axle actually runs on the plastic end seal, NOT the bearing. What can happen is the top hat section can wear away allowing the cranks to slop about somewhat.

Pisces finds the intimacy it craves in Scorpio. This water sign duo will likely have an intuitive link to each other and be able to understand each other without speaking.”
