Here are the specs for the bike. I have most of the parts sat in the shop waiting for the bike, but I'm just waiting for a new thru axles from SVC, for my Chris King front hub. The original was machined at 14.4mm and not 15mm, so the axle wouldn't fit!! Not something I'm used to from CK. Anyway, here we go:
MootoX 19" frame (single bend and 68mm threaded BB, customised).
Fox Terralogic Fork 100mm 15mm Thru Axle
Chris King Headset
Ritchey WCS Alloy Bars Wet black
Ritchey WCS Alloy stem Wet Black
Thomson Seatpost Black
Prologo Scratch HWD saddle
Chris King hubs 32hole (black)
Mavic TN719 rims
DT Revolution Spokes (silver
DT brass nipples
Maxxis Welter Weight tubes
Schwable Racing Ralph 2.1 tyres
HOPE rear QR
HOPE Tech Evo X2 brakes 140mm rear rotor and 160mm front rotor
XTR Front Derailleur
XTR Rear Derailleur (medium cage)
Rotor 3D Cranks Ti axle 175mm
Rotor Q Rings 38T and 25T
Rotor 68mm English BB
I think that's about it.
Just a couple of things. I NEVER put carbon seatposts, stems or bars on any of my bikes. Never have, never will. As a bike shop mechanic, I see a far higher percentage of carbon parts fail, over good quality alloy ones and the weight gain and stiffness is negligible in my opinion, and certainly on a mountain bike. I'm not pretty, but I like my face the way it is. A failed stem or post isn't my idea of a fun day out.
with the Rotor cranks I have them fitted on my cross bike and my road race bike and they are the best for me. Again, a personal thing, but they are just great. Super stiff and super light. I HIGHLY recommend them.
As for the BB. Again, this comes down to a bike shop mechanic mentality. Press fits are a bad idea. I know why the manufactures use them and for road bikes there is a certain argument for their use, but for MTBs, give me a good threaded BB every time. Sure, a larger bearing in a bigger cup will disperse the load and spin smoother, but as far as fit goes, they just suck!! The absolute best BB in the world is a Campy SR with steel bearings. I don't know how those Italians do it, but everyone of those puppies I fit will spin like nothing else. Absolutely beautiful. But seeing as I can't get them for my Moots, I'm going with the same one in my cross bike, because that seems to spin pretty well too.
As far as removing the press fit, there are a couple of ways, but if you don't intend on using the BB bearing again, then I just tend to tap it out from the opposite side, moving around the shell so as to not stress the actual BB itself. It should come out pretty easily with a bit of love. A nice flat ended solid bar is always good, just go easy at first!! If you get the lip of the BB shell to come away from the frame, then you can rig up a bearing puller to ease it off nicely, but this almost always needs and bit of lateral thinking to ensure the puller has a nice solid base on which to seat itself.
Best way to refit a press fit is to use a headset press. This ensures a uniform amount of pressure across the face of the BB cup and you can ease it in nice and square and nice and tight. If you're not sure about any of this, ask your local friendly bike mechanic to help......like I say, with a threaded BB......NO PROBLEM....
