Default Re: Are the Bottom bracket races threaded in?

Low end bikes usually have a threaded BB with loose balls.

Only high end and racing bikes have a "cartridge" BB with sealed bearings. The end play is still adjusted with a threaded lock ring.

1 piece steel cranks are the lowest option the scheme of quality bike parts.
