    Default Campagnolo UT cups question -

    Would the Record UT bottom bracket cups work with a Super Record crank set?

    I’m sourcing components for my Peg and have never mixed group set parts.

    Component selection is near to nil so I may have to combine.

    You think these will play nicely with each other?

    yes, 100%.

    the only difference is that the SR cups lack the seals the record cups have, so there might be preciously more drag but they will work perfectly.

    Campy says the ceramic UT bearings on the Super Record cranks donít require the inner seals that the steel or hybrid bearings do. If the extra drag is a bother Iím sure you can peel the seals out of the cups.

    I'm using SR cups with my Record and they work fine...I don't ride that bike in the rain so no issues.

    Dirt? Cut outs in the bottom bracket shell?

    Ya an FYI the parts I ordered (the few I could get at all) came with a Super Record 12 speed crank set but with a Record bb cup package. Hence the ask. The cups are marked UT.

    That's the better setup anyway. They knew you were going to get it dirty.

    My experience with the Ultra Torque system is that the ceramic bearings are awesome. Set em and forget em.

    If that’s a Somerville Merlin it needs a drain hole. Ask me how I know that some time.

    My other Merlin from 1998, my daily rider with sealed UT cups which I still avoid the rain with too. ;)

    Also Richard, I recall you were using C-bear kit for a while at some point. Any comments on their bearings in UT application? I've got a UT crank that is going to need some new bearings soon.

    We used them box stock for RSCX (with SRAM Force 1X).

    But I didn’t use the set for my current Super Record 12 bicycle because I wasn’t interested in extracting the bearings from the crank set and pressing them in the C-Bear cups.

    For some reason, they only supply Campagnolo compatible cups. The switch is on the user.

    I think your second paragraph answers the implied question in your third paragraph?

    Ya no way I'm going to pony up for a pair of SR cranks and then have to extract the bearings in order to use them in a pair of alloy cups that are a different color. If they came with bearings like the SRAM versions do, I'd have screwed them in. Thus, only the cups are in my current road bicycle.

    Is it only Campagnolo that have the bearings on the axle rather than in the cups? But yeah, why bother with an aftermarket pair of cups? Daft.

    On another note, what's your experience with the C-Bear BB with Sram-equipped bikes? If C-Bear are sponsors for your cross team, don't answer the question.
