ROTOR widens distribution with Standard Deviation Bottom Bracket at Sea Otter

ROTOR Bike Components is exhibiting its new ‘Standard Deviation’ Bottom Bracket line at the 2011 Sea Otter Classic Expo, which runs from 14-17 April in Monterey, California.

Sea Otter remains a key event for a company to get its message across. The 2011 expo has 315 exhibitors and more than 300 media representatives on site.

With over 8,500 athletes, competing in SRAM sponsored mountain bike and road bike races, the event typically draws more than 50,000 spectators – with around 4,500 camping on site.

ROTOR is present at Sea Otter at booth number 333. According to the company, ‘the bike industry is being flooded with new, changing bottom bracket standards, which cause confusion and frustration to all shops and consumers.’

For 2011, ROTOR´s aim is to offer a range of BBs, which enable the installation of 3D & 3D+ ROTOR cranks (as well as other brands manufactured under the same specifications) in all BB and frame standards.

The new ROTOR bottom brackets displayed in California will be:

Press Fit 4130 BB. Make 3D+ crank compatible with BB86, BB89 (& BB92 for MTB). Fits 3D+ cranks in a Shimano Press fit BB. Double raw bearing, extra loading capacity. Steel and Ceramic option available. Ceramic version with titanium nitrate coating.

Press Fit 4630. Fully compatible with PF30 (68 and 73mm BB width) road and MTB frames. Also compatible with Cervélo R5 & R3 BBright frames (79mm BB width).

Press Fit 4624; allows the installation of ROTOR 24mm axle cranks in all those frames (3D & Agilis) but not Shimano range. Options: Steel & Ceramic. Enduro bearings and external seals.

Press Fit BBright4624. Developed to fit 3D, Agilis 2010 and SHIMANO crank range in 2011 R3 & R5 Cervélo frames. Only available with steel bearings. Colour black.

ROTOR is also happy to announce that its 3D+ cranks are 100% compatible with the brand new BB386EVO BB standard released by BH & FSA a few days ago.
