    Got a Hambini look 695 BB installed on my bike and so far it’s been exceptional, the ZED 2 was stiff but this seems so much stiffer, why I changed to this BB, I was having issues getting ZED 2 bearings and parts so after getting the whole unit fixed I decided to take it off for when I go to sell the bike to keep it original and use the hambini BB in the mean time, I have a feeling it will be the bikes selling point if I ever sell it, unlikly as I love my look bike, pity about the suppliers and shop owners support for them? the power seems to go right to the wheels it’s hard to explain,climbing, exceleration and sustaining of speed is very noticable and exceptionally smooth along with using a shimano chainring, chain and cassette together feels so much better, I use garmin pedals and right away the power was up for a reason I don’t understand maybe the pedals are off maybe the BB is making a stiffer more efficient transfer of power, anyway I’m not saying no to it, my mechanic who fitted it could’t believe how smooth it was, it really makes the bike so much more enjoyable to ride. I’m still breaking it in after a few weeks and haven’t gone full trottle 48 hour ultra racing torture on it yet, but the more I push it the better it responds. Thanks Hambini really enjoying it now.

    Beautiful design!
    Few noticeable improvements on my usual routes:
    1. Creaking noise coming from my left crank is completely gone. Boost in spiritual watts.
    2. Pedal feels smoother, increase in average cadence with same perceived effort on same routes.
    3. Power pedals are reading at least 10W higher with same perceived effort (increase in average speed) – to be analysed further.

    Overall, very happy and impressed!

    I purchased the BB65 for my Look 695 and it arrived within a few days. The bottom bracket is of very high quality, as you’d expect from this particular 5 year old, and it was simple to install with the fitting tools I ordered. I found there was a noticeable difference over the Zed 2 crank which came with the bike, which was already pretty good to start with. It now feels extremely smooth on every single pedal stroke and is also very quiet. All the power I put through the pedals feels like it’s going directly into the rear wheel. I’m very pleased with the outcome. Cheers Hambini

    I was forced to ditch the ZED crankset and thought I would have to get rid of my 695 in the process. This fixed that problem and gave the bike a new lease of life. Extremely well made, fit and function are like nothing else.
