1/21/14 – CANNONDALE WTB OVERMOUNTAIN TEAM CHOOSES PRAXIS WORKS
We are very proud to announce that the 2014 Cannondale WTB Overmountain team has chosen the Praxis Conversion BB as their official BB for the upcoming season. The Enduro racing scene has quickly blown up in popularity and the Overmountain team riders have been a leading force on the world circuit. The 2014 roster is once again led by perennial tough guys from NorCal, Mark Weir and Jason Moeschler. Young guns Ben Cruz and new team rider Marco Osborne will be waiving the youth flag for the team and buzzing the tires of their leaders.
Needing the best Bottom Bracket for their Shimano cranks on their PF30 Cannondales, the riders jumped at the Praxis BB. Jason had previous experience on the BB last season and had this to say about it.
“I was in a real pinch to find a good option for a conversion last season. I discovered the Praxis option as, what I thought would be, a perfect short-term solution. From a mechanic’s standpoint, it’s the best BB30/PF30 conversion option I’ve ever seen and used. Imagine my surprise after riding them for a whole year that they are as durable as any other BB on the market. The bearings stay smooth no matter the riding conditions. There’s no creaking, and I get the benefit of BB30 stiffness.”
With the 2014 season just around the corner, Praxis is honored and excited to be a part of the 2014 Cannondale WTB Overmountain team.
