RaceFace Evolve crank stiff


Recommended Posts

I have a RaceFace Evolve XC crank with the X-Type external bottom bracket system.

The last 2/3 times I've found the crank to be quite stiff but had to ride it anyway. It turns and there is no rough feeling or sound however but it's normal.


I was wondering if anyone knows what it up before I get it sorted? I've used in for about 6 months.

Tee-hee.....Just saw this thread while catching up on lost Hub-time on a Friday-night.


I'll not share my rather strong feelings regarding RaceFace, but to give you a genuine answer if you still want one.....it's likely your bb is shot.


6 months seems short, but is not uncommon for these BBs. My first RF X-type bb lasted 4 months. If you bought it locally and the frame has a drainage hole, the local agents should warranty it I'm told
