I had a new technician at my LBS install my first one to show me how to install an external BB. It turns out he overtightened it which cracked one of the plastic spacers and lead to it only lasting a season of racing before it started creaking noisily. I bought another one and installed it properly myself and it has lasted me fine over another season.
The BB weighed 110g.
