Bottom Brackets

 

Specialites TA

All Axix and Xytech bottom brackets have sealed cartridge bearings, and all but the 103mm length have additional lip seals on the retaining cups. Xytech bottom brackets have two cartridge bearings on the right (drive) side, and one on the left. Crank bolts are not included with any TA bottom brackets. Axix Pro and Xytech Pro have titanium axles to save weight.

All Axix and Xytech models use industry standard 6903 cartridge bearings.

All TA bottom brackets are fully compatible with Campagnolo cranks designed for symmetrical axles.

The frame should have a hole to allow water to drain from the bottom bracket shell when using TA bottom brackets.

All models are available in either British (BSC) threading or Italian threading.

  Most Campy triple cranksets use a 111mm axle, But the taper is ISO, not the JIS taper used by Phil Wood and other bottom bracket makers. And Phil needs to make a 111mm axle in JIS for many Japanese cranks. So to help identify the axle that works with Campy triples, Phil makes a 110.5mm axle with the Campy/ISO taper. It works perfectly with the Campy Triples.

We stock Phil Wood bottom brackets for old and new Campagnolo cranksets.

Original version TA Carmina cranks with either a single chainring or doubles use a 103mm JIS taper axle, as long as the seat tube is either 1 1/8" or 1 1/4" diameter. If it's 1 3/8" diameter, use a 108mm axle. The original Carmina triple uses the 113mm JIS axle with 1 1/8" or 1 1/4" seat tubes, and 116mm with 1 3/8" seat tubes.

Identify the original Carmina by the same polished finish all over the rear of the arms. The second version of the Carmina has a sand blasted sort of grey finish inside the relieved area on the back side of the arms. Add 5mm to 6mm to the axle length for the second version Carmina arms.

TA made this change in 2007 without telling anyone. Not even their US importer was told about it. I discovered the change when customers started calling with complaints that the bottom bracket we sold them with their new Carmina crank that we sold them, wasn't long enough. I immediately informed the US importer. A similar thing happened several years ago when TA decided to change the tapers on the Zephyr crank, again without breathing a word of the change to anyone.

Isn't TA wonderful? Sigh...
