The RRS above uses the two piece bottom bracket insert. These are made to take Hadley bottom bracket internals, including the bearings.

The two piece insert was an option with the RRS frames. I switched out the insert in my 24 for a two piece insert so I could run 401's too.

And that 20 of Trulyodds is killer!

Re: 1981 RRS Racing

Excellent job and kept clean an OG. I still have not brought myself to repaint mine yet because of you telling me to leave it OG. I can see why now.... Great Job Man wink


Caution! Made in Taiwan stickers found on USA made Mongoose frames are known to be made in China.
