Whats the difference between PF30 and BB30?

Both standards are designed to use a crank arm spindle with a 30mm diameter (hence the ’30’ in the name), but with a BB30 set up the bearings sit directly in the frame, and with a PF30 the bearings are housed in a nylon or aluminum retainer that gets pressed into the frame.

How do you size a BB?

The 68mm and 73mm dimension measure the width of the bottom bracket on the frame of the bike with no BB installed, simply the width of the shell. Most road bikes that use a threaded bottom bracket measure 68mm wide and most cross country/trail mountain bikes measure 73mm.

What does the 30 in BB30 refer to?

PF42 (also known as BB30, BB30a, BB30ai, BBright™ Direct Fit) The term PF42 refers to the inside diameter of the shell. The term BB30 was an early term in the history of this standard and refers to the 30mm diameter of the spindle used at that time.
