Praxis Shimano Conversion Bottom Bracket Details
Praxis' conversion bottom bracket provides a strong reliable platform to run your Shimano™ 24mm spindle cranks, with your BB30 or Presfit 30 (PF30) frame. The strength of this conversion BB lies in its threaded design. The non-drive side cup is press fit into the frame providing an interface similar to other bottom bracket conversions on the market. Where the Praxis design differs is in its use of a threaded drive side cup. Using a Shimano BB tool the drive side threads into the non-drive side sleeve. The last millimeter, or so, of threads expand the non-drive shell creating a stronger friction hold than a simple press fit bottom bracket could. Furthermore the threaded design perfectly aligns the BB in your frame and prevents any walking out or wobbling of the bearings under load.
The Praxis Bottom Bracket Conversion comes with a sleeve to fit PF30 frames. The sleeve will need to be press fit into the frame before threading in the BB30 converter. For a BB30 frame the sleeve can simply be discarded and the BB30 adaptor installed.
The newest Praxis BB adaptor works with a Specialized OSBB frame to a standard 24mm Shimano type crank.
Di2 / EPS Compatibility
The new BB30 conversion has wiring holes drilled into it for internally routed wiring. The PF30 sleeve does not have the same holes.
