    2017 S3 bottom Bracket

    I am using the Rotor 3D crankset but fed up of the onboard bearings, does anyone use any of the various adapters from Praxis, Wheels Manufacturing etc?? Like the idea of going ceramic maybe.

    I had my LBS put in a BBInfinite on my 2016 R3. No problems with it since it was installed. I'm guessing since both the R3 and S3 use BBRight that it should work for you too. I believe there is a Ceramic option as well. --Brad

    +1 for bbinfinite. Get rid of that cup system.

    Impressive B.B. Just been on their website, quite pricey but the US to UK postage is probably the show stopper, I have seen the Token Ninja which seems available in the UK at a more reasonable cost with ceramic

    Neil. I say this with all due respect ur riding an expensive race machine man and you shouldn't worry about postage. A few quid to get top shelf gear just do it :-) you deserve it.

    I don't have any first-hand experience but check out Hambini Engineering (www.hambini.com). He's got a series of YouTube videos and seems like the guy knows what he's talking about. He makes bike parts including bottom brackets.

    Hi there, I am using CeramicSpeed on my S5 ( it came from Cervelo like that ) and is fantastic! it has Aluminum cups and ceramic bearings. No creaks and spin for days. Hope that helps

    I put a Hambini BB in my creaking S5 and problem more than solved. I’ve tried everything and this is the only thing that worked. I bought the B.B. that converts to Shimano and put a new crank on as well. I highly recommend this solution.
