    BB86 Ultra Torque Adapter cups installation question

    About to install my Campy BB86 adapter cups into a carbon frameset. The Campy installation video on youtube shows a dry installation. I have also heard complaints about creaking and using Loctite 641 usually solves that.

    So...how did you install your cups...dry, with Loctite or did you use something else?

    Thanks!

    I used the bb30 cups with a but of grease and have had no issues several months in.

    I just did this in my Ridley and was fretting over the very same thing. My Noah had carbon inserts in the frame, so I decided to use Carbon Paste with zero problems. If you have aluminum inserts in the bottom bracket shell, you might consider Loctite, but honestly I would do it dry and see how the results go. What frame are you putting them in? It looked from my research that Cannondales had issues with the creaking.
    Cyclists really need to learn a little Rule #5.

    It is a Scott CR1, the bottom bracket is carbon. I put it together last night and used some Loctite 641. That is what Cervelo recommends for securing their BBrright bottom brackets, and from what I understand, is what Cannondale also recommends. Loctite 641 is a retaining compound, not a thread locker like most people think. I had to order it from an industrial supply house.

    I plan to ride it tomorrow, so we will see how it goes. Interestingly, the bb86 cups inserted pretty easily into the frameset. I could press them most of the way in with my hands. Just had to use a press for the last little bit.

    Thanks for the response.
