- OMG tough!
- smoothest pedaling I have ever felt on a bike
- it's insanely durable
- it fast
- I have full confidence in this thing and have never wasted a second having to worry about it.
- currently about $40!
- it's not on everyone bike!
Ok, seriously this thing has taken a ton of woop-ass and still rides insanely. I ride in NH and beat the hell out of my main bike on technical single track and long rough stretches of double track and snowmobile trails. If you need proof of the abuse this bottom bracket can take peruse thru my pics throughout my profile and you will see what that bike goes thru.
That being said, I have done very little maintenance to this piece other than a yearly dismantle and scrub down of the bike once it snows. I have never tried to open it or rebuild it at all only removed it from the frame, cleaned it off and wiped it down with a little TriFlo on a rag and slapped it back in.
It makes the smoothest pedaling bike I have ever ridden. I love it and if it ever does fail on me you better believe I will be hunting down another one to replace it with.
