English Threaded Bottom Bracket



The VO English Threaded Bottom Bracket uses quality sealed bearings for simplicity and durability.

  • Classic square taper design
  • JIS taper - works with most cranks
  • Hollow boron steel axle
  • Aluminum cups
  • 258g (110mm length)
  • Spindles are available in a variety of lengths to fit most cranksets
  • Includes crank bolts

Generally it is the crank model that determines spindle length, so check what spindle length the crank manufacturer recommends or measure your old BB. If between sizes, it's usually wise to choose the longer.

Use the Dajia Cycleworks Bottom Bracket Tool or Park Tool BBT-22 for installation.

Velo Orange Bottom Bracket 67mm BC1.37

1. It was the lightest of the three 68x110mm BC1.37 BB I bought at 421g (positive). (Shimano BB-UN300, heaviest 467g and IRD QB-95 at 436g).
2. The non-drive side cap barely fit my Park Tool BBT-32. I had to really wriggle the BB piece until the openings seemed to open up a little. The metal on this non-drive side cap seemed somewhat flimsy, also. (negative)
3. I do not like any pre-applied material on the threads. (negative)
4. It was not the cheapest, not most expensive of the three BB. (neutral).
So, I installed the IRD QB-95 on my bike as it seemed like a more solid metallic BB and turned most easily of the 3 I purchased.

Review of three VO bb cartridges on my bikes

One of the English threaded bb cartridges seems to have an unusual amount of drag after installation. It may loosen up after some use, but in the work stand, you can turn it with one finger and give it a spin ... but it only spins about 3/4 of turn, even with a hard spin.

The stars grade on this review is for another English one I have installed, as well as the French one a bike shop put in for me years ago - both work GREAT!

Is a bottom bracket.

Is a bottom bracket. Is smooth. Is properly holding my cranks.

Works As expected

Nothing short of a workhorse. Pairs well with my grad cru crankset
