    BBInfinite users?

    Has anyone converted to this style shell/system? I am sick of the creaking on the new bike and am afraid i may quickly develop the same creaking with a new SRAM GXP BB.

    For reference this would be replacing a PF92, so I am specificly looking for people converting from a normal multi piece pressfit.

    I only have experience press fitting your mom's bottom bracket.



    Sorry, the robots made me say that.

    Same here. I even tried one of the Praxis PF to threaded conversion BB's so I could use my Shimano crankset. Still creaks like mad.

    Did you use locktite or another available automotive bonder that quits it down? I heard of another on the MTB podcast last night but I didnt write it down. Apparently it never dries completely and keeps thing sealed and quiet even with carbon.

    Maybe just uninstall, regrease and reinstall. I wouldn't use locktite personally.

    Don't forget to stop and smell the Rosemary.

    Yeah, I used Loctite 609 on the outer shell. I have some anti-seize grease on the threaded part on the inside for when I need to change or service the bearings.
