C Bear Free Speed Bottom Bracket

I have been riding C bear BB for two years now and don't want to ride anything else. 

After installing the C Bear BB you will immediately notice your  cranks spin freely and when you spin the crank backwards it keeps rotating a lot longer than a standard BB. 
This has great affect to overall watts produced and performance when you think of how many rotations you do in a race, it's like giving yourself free speed!

Another great thing about C Bear is the range of ceramic BB they make.
So no matter what racing bike you have you can instantly save yourself some watts by using ceramic C Bear BB.

I can recommend C Bear to any racers or anyone who just wants a smooth fast reliable bb for there bike!

Massive thanks to C bear for helping me be that little bit faster!!

The classics season begin today 28 feb 2015 : Omloop Het Nieuwblad (last sat in feb) and Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne on Sunday 29 feb 2015, both in Belgium. 

Omloop Het Nieuwblad also the first big European race for top-level women's teams. 2 hours ahead of the men’s race, the 120.5km course will pass over eight climbs and six cobbled sectors.

Omloop Het Nieuwblad : 200km course through Flemish Ardennes, 11 hellingen– including the Muur, Kruisberg, Taaienberg, Leberg and Molenberg – and ten stretches of cobbles.

Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne : 8 of the race's 9 climbs are clustered in a frenetic 60-km stretch shortly after the midway point, including the Kanarieberg, Kruisberg and Kwaremont. The final climb of the Nokereberg is some 53 kilometres from the finish. 

“The beauty of the Opening Weekend – the true start of the season and then a chance to begin all over again, all within the space of twenty-four hours.”

Who? Which Team? will mark the opening win at Omloop Het Nieuwblad ?
(Lotto-Soudal) Jurgen Roelandts

Happy Birthday Wiggins!
Sir Bradley Wiggins was born on 28 April 1980 in Ghent, Belgium, before moving to London, where he began track cycling.
He is able to produce an immense power output of over 450 watts at anaerobic threshold and sustain it for durations over 60 minutes.
Bradley Wiggins tickets for hour record attempt (7 June, 2015) Tickets : £29 and £49 for the 6,000-capacity arena - Olympic Velodrome UK, sold out in seven minutes.
Wiggins rides for the UCI Continental team WIGGINS, after leaving Team Sky. His new Pinarello race bike is currently at an undisclosed location where WIGGINS team mechanics are busily putting finishing touches to it. The most noticeable change is from Shimano Dura-Ace to SRAM components.
Besides no creaking ceramic bottom brackets, C-Bear also has smooth spinning wheel ceramic bearings including for Zipp wheels http://www.c-bear.com/…/w…/zipp-wheel-v9-ceramic-bearing.php

C-Bear - Silent Ceramic Performance, Darby Thomas (professional triathlete)

I recently had a bottom bracket compatibility issue with a frame and the crank set I wanted to use.  A friend had told me about C-Bear and I was able to quickly find the info about which product to order.  The customer service contacted me virtually immediately to confirm the product compatibility and within a few days I was installing the bottom bracket.
 
Today’s bikes have a wide variety of bottom bracket standards and the market for cranks provides even greater variety of compatible components.  However, sometimes the crank set you want doesn’t line up with the bottom bracket standard used on your frame.   There are many adapters and shims available out there but most are complicated and usually the performance of the system suffers because of that.

C-Bear was founded by Bart Schouten who was himself frustrated by the frequency of bearings changing.  After he found the quality durable ceramic bearings, he decided to share his findings with other cyclists - C-Bear is borned.  Bart began to develop his own premium ceramic bearing bottom brackets that required no adaptors or installation shims; just simple installation as per the frame’s normal installation method.  
 
In my case, I had a BB30 compliant frame and a GXP standard crank.  After getting the bottom bracket from C-Bear I simply pressed it into place in about 30 seconds, pushed the cranks in and tightened.  End of story.  During my first few test rides I was immediately impressed by the silent smooth performance of the ceramic bearings.  In the past, I had been annoyed by how easily some bottom brackets made creaking noises.  The C-Bear bottom bracket was immediately silent and smooth without any need to fine-tune the greasing or re-install multiple times.  

I also ordered C-bears ceramic bearings for my wheels and derailleur pulleys.  For those who don’t know about the benefits of using ceramic vs. standard steel bearings, there is a few watts savings.  As I am a professional triathlete, even a 1watt savings is very meaningful in my bike speed and race time.  I am looking forward to putting all these new tools to use in my upcoming races!

C-Bear, supports equal opportunity for passion, determination and dedication in cycle racing, sponsors ACE-The Sufferfest Lesotho MTB Team, the first black UCI MTB Team in Africa.
In 2014 the team only had 3 bikes between 7 team riders and had to share bikes between race categories or loan bikes, but that did not stop the team.
Here is a video installation (March 2015) from the team "creak-free riding. Phetetso (a team member) completed the tough 250km 3Mountains race shortly after installing new bottom brackets effortlessly."

Are the latest Hour Attempts,  Apples vs Oranges?  Sarah Storey Hour Attempt Live today Feb 28th 2015 from14:50-15:15GMT

Since the UCI changed its strict "Merckx" equipment rules and allowed the use of standard UCI-legal track pursuit equipment, there has been a resurgence in riders trying to break the last Hour Record.

The latest scheduled attempt will be by the five-time Paralympic gold medallist Sarah Storey, first female to attempt to surpass the 2003 mark of 46.065km set by Dutch rider Leontien Zijlaard van Moorsel.

Leontien claimed the change of equipment is comparing Apples with Oranges?

Thomas Dekker (52,221) just 270m short of Rohan Dennis' record (52,491km). Whoever made the Hour Record attempt, deserve respect all the same.
