    Comments about Race Face Team XC X-Type Bottom Bracket:

    Replaced the bb on my Rocky Mountain with the same...might have been original. Easy swap, noticeably smoother and less creaky, just nervous about other negative reviews. So far (40 miles) it seems great.

      Comments about Race Face Team XC X-Type Bottom Bracket:

      I bought this to replace the one that came with my Deore crankset. The Deore BB only lasted 150 miles before the drive side bearings were shot.

      Since installing this I have ridden well over 1000 miles and it is still running smooth.

          I use this for XC riding and racing.

          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.
