SRAM BB 83 GXP Introduction
The SRAM GXP Team bicycle bottom bracket is durable, lightweight and designed to support SRAM road or Truvativ mountain cranksets, and is identical to bottom brackets used in popular Force and X0 groups. Left side bearing has a smaller diameter to mate with the stepped spindle of SRAM crank, allowing the inner race of left side bearing to be captured between the crank arm and spindle. Right side bearing "floats'' on spindle, handling only radial loads as you pedal. The SRAM design optimizes bearing load, minimizes drag, and gives you durability. The GXP Team Bottom Bracket has alloy cups and sealed cartridge bearings to keep dirt and water out for a maintenance-free experience.
