Finally! I’ve been using my Chris King ceramic PF30 BB on my Argonaut and all I’ve wanted is to be able to put one on my Bishop as well. These things are legit and if the word of a raconteur isn’t good enough for you, they’ve been raced exclusively by United Healthcare.
100% made in the USA, with a 5-year warranty, available for 24mm or 30mm PF shells, fully servicable bearings, available in ceramic or stainless and of course, in all the colors of the Chris King rainbow!
Here’s the press-release from Chris King:

“A project from bureauofcommongoods.com, Made by Hand is a new short film series celebrating the people who make things by hand—sustainably, locally, and with a love for their craft.
Our fifth film turns to bike maker Ezra Caldwell (Fast Boy Cycles), who was diagnosed with cancer in 2008. When the cancer threatens to shatter his love of bikes, Ezra survives by documenting his illness as thoroughly as his craft.”
It’s been a long couple of days on the road for the ATOC this year. Mostly filled with the riding to blogging ratio tipped towards saddle time. The trip has been very productive, while veering a little to the left of the norm. I didn’t find myself in a neutral support car, or scouring the crowds at the start of the race. Instead, we soaked up the riding that the various host cities had to offer.
So as you can tell, there hasn’t been much coverage from the ATOC. Instead of following the race each day, we’ve been riding in the cities that are hosting the race. Today, we woke up and hit Gibraltar. Or rather, Gibraltar hit us. It was amazing and there will be more details once my film gets developed. For now, this iPhone photo looks mad decent.
