since stiffness is on par with the AC BB, all i need is to wait on your say on the durability of it. 8) but it is looking like a winner.

Hello,

is the BB like the DA 7700 bottom bracket and I need to regulate the play of the bearings, or is it like an Ultegra BB (just put it on the bike)?

Is there any link to a shop where I can buy the BB?

Thanks
Effe

You just put it in the frame (like an Ultegra).

www.zerolite.com has them.

You mean the old one, which was called back, or the "new" redesigned one which, as far as I know, is still not available.

I bought a Zerolite headset the other day. It looks great, weighs 91g, appears extremely well crafted. I suspect the Zerolite BB is up to the same excellent standards...the design makes sense.

Mine now has 1482m on it and is smooth as when it was fitted.

I wanted to check last night on water ingress after a couple of rainy rides so I stripped the BB, nothing got in there at all (I would have been surprised if it did) and found it real simple to pop the bearings off if they needed replacing.
