In this video, Jeff Yingling, part of CeramicSpeed's Technical/R&D Support group, goes over proper bottom bracket maintenance. Keeping your bearings lubricated and in top shape. He goes over how to check for contaminated bearings and what to do to keep that from happening.
He also goes over some of the more common bottom bracket standards: how to identify what bearings and/or bottom bracket your bike requires.
If you're racing Kona and your bottom bracket is in rough shape, CeramicSpeed will be on site by Hugos On The Rocks offering both sales and service.
This is the eighth and final video in our series on maintenance presented by CeramicSpeed.
CeramicSpeed is one of the world’s leading suppliers of ceramic bearings. They have more than 15 years’ experience in bearings applications and were the first to introduce ceramic bearings to the cycling industry. CeramicSpeed bearings are based directly on the technology developed as part of NASA’s space program in the 1990s. Today, CeramicSpeed produces hybrid bearings, using top grade Silicon Nitride ceramic balls, which surpass traditional steel bearings in every possible way. With continuous product development, ceramic ball technology has now entered everyday usage, both within industrial applications and cycling. All CeramicSpeed bearings are handmade in Denmark.
