My new ISIS BB is in, Scandium/Al alloy axle with replaceable twin bearings and carbon center spacer. This thing is sweeet! Weight 119gm (118gm claimed).

My march continues toward the beast being ready :twisted:

well, you'll have to give us the stiffness report, because at least judging from your frame sizes, you're a pretty big guy. So let us know how it works! Good luck!

I don't have any pics or a link, site needs updating.

Ask Jose when he's back from Pomona.

I've used the FRM and also a Pazzaz CroMo BB. I think the Pazzaz is the AC BB under another name, it's identical when I compared them side by side.

I've found the Scandium BB is stiffer than the FRM, on the same level as the Pazzaz in stiffness, but it's smoother and I think it will last longer as the bearings appear to be of much better quality than the Pazzaz/AC. Plus the long bolts that are supplied go into the bearing area of the axle, which should make it better supported at the axle ends, giving better bearing life.

thanks for the pic. i think the scandium is the way i will go, more money than i wanted to spend, but its all part of the sport. i am thinking of getting the scott Cr1 team frame. im still debating on the size, and when or if i should get it.

thanks for the info, Ye Olde Balde One - since it is as stiff as the AC/pazzaz BB i think i will will just get the zerolite.

how much are the extra bearings?

Upon a closer look this BB looks familiar. Oops it's another propduct from Taiwan, KCNC model: BB-4000A.

Those interested can visit their website at www.kcnc.com.tw for more info.

Cups are different color but your probably right.

Does it matter where it's made though? Most ISIS BB's are made in Taiwan, as long as they are made properly, it shouldn't matter - at least it doesn't to me. I'd be worried if you said China, as they don't have the experience with high quality manufacture to the same degree as on Taiwan.

My first one did, but then I got a couple of others and they had the Al spacer, which is probably better - it didn't add any weight.
