Rated 5 out of 5 by Great bit of kit allowing your Hope BB to be used with Truvativ/SRAM cranks Easy to press or tap in make sure you support the bearings when doing so. Check the bearing seal is not adding resistance on the cup when the cranks are spinning. Tighten up well to make sure the axle is pressed against the inner race. The only thing I have done extra is added a small notch with a file on one of the cups so I can remove them at a latter date. There you go you now have the quality of a Hope BB working with your cranks happy days. 01 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by 'interesting' to install but work once in Need to be tapped into the inner race of the bearing (or at least hope say thats how to do it). Alternatively could be pressed in using a headset press, this would probably put your nice new bearing at less risk. Not sure if ill be able to re-use these if/when my current BB wears out; we'll see im sure. 08 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good product but over priced Bought these so I could use my quarq power meter in a hope bb. Quick and easy installation and hey presto in goes the quarq nice tight and free rotating. Only downside is the price, cnc machine would be knocking these out by the bucket load and profit must be huge on every kit sold. 30 November 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does what it's supposed to But chamfers on the inserting edge would have helped positioning easily the rings on the bearing before hammering them home. My Truvativ Stylo crank is now resting nicely in my Hope BB! 24 August 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Outer seal scrapes in BB cup The BB seems to have a high quality. I won't be complaining about that. However, I installed it with the Truative GPX conversion kit and this is not working very well. The outer seal is rotating and scraping in the BB cup. This is creating a drag and the rotation of the cranks is not smooth as it should be. Contact with Hope as been quick, however I have myself needed to come up with a solution of grinding a bit of the outer seal so it stops rotating. A solution not desirable for the price paid for the BB 05 October 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not for Chris King Just to warn any Chris King BB owners. I thought these Hope GXP converters may be suitable to convert any Bottom Bracket to a Truvative type stepped GXP BB, but they didn't fit my Chris King BB. I have now ordered CK's own GXP converter kit. I don't know if they fit any other BB apart from Hope's own. Otherwise they are well packaged and seem well made. 01 January 2011
Rated 4 out of 5 by I bought 2 pieces - just to have a ready spare - founding very good for construction care and really easy to fit.- I can say it works very good and price ridicolous for the work done! 10 April 2010

Answer: 
The GXP Convertor would not be compatible with your Shimano Press-Fit BB as this would only be compatible with Hope's Range of Bottom Brackets.

Answers

Answer: 
These adapters are for SRAM GXP bottom brackets, which is highly likely the standard that you are running at present. This is because of the Tapered spindle on a SRAM crank, making running with a Shimano bottom bracket impossible.
