ok guys i busted my cranks on my volta 2011 stock cranks and is wanting to get some primo powerbite cranks
cranks
it says on the website without bearing would i have to buy a primo bottom bracket because the bb on my volta is fine and i dont know what size the spindle is on my volta as it says the primo cranks spindle is 22mm will they fit my bike?

im sure the volta has a 19 mm bottom bracket so you would need to buy a 22mm one

I'm 99% sure you need a new bb cause usually stock cranks have a 19mm spindle...

Pretty much all BB are the same. the only difference is the amount of spacers and the material the spacers are made out of. i'd recommend the kink bb. i just got one in spanish, idk if it comes in mid but the cone spacers are really nice cnc aluminum.

Get Fit 24mm Cranks, comes with a BB (for a lil bit more) You can also get them in 165mm,170mm &175mms. I myself with the WTPs chainstays would get 170mms.

if you wan't powerbites you will have to order a spanish bb (22mm), most bb are all the same so most of them should be ok as long as you get the right size

or you could think for another pair of cranks like subrosa bitchin' cranks, currently riding them and they're holding up (19 mm spindle so you would't have to buy another bb)

thats what i thought mate (Mid, US, Spanish or Euro) is to do with the frame, nothing to do with the cranks. It defines the outer bearing size, cups if required, etc. just wondering on a legit mid bb 22mm to get hmmmm

seen these 2 mid bb 22mm
odyssey
animal

but if you guys got any more suggestions for better ones then fire away sorry about noobish again just hardly no experience in the bb and crank department

Bearing are bearing most companies use the same shit with different color housing and shit so i mean your good either way i'd go with the Odyssey but, that's just cause i don't like animal...

think am set them primo powerbites with 22mm mid bb odyssey what you think guys good crank setup ?

Ok, if you have a mid bottom bracket, you HAVE to get a mid bottim bracket bearing. for the 19 or 22 selection, that depends on the cranks. For the Primo cranks, you have to get 22mm because that's the size of the spindle. but if you bought another set of cranks that were just 19mm, you dont have to get anothere bearing because you already have a 19mm mid bottom bracket. all bearings are the same to me, but i have to say, kink, animal, and shadow have some nice ass bearings
