        This bottom bracket was a replacement BB for my 2009 Specialized Epic, which had a bad left side bearing. Installation was simple with the Park BBT-9 bottom bracket tool. Took about 10 minutes.

            Comments about Shimano XT SM-BB70 Bottom Bracket:

            Very Stiff and a huge weight difference. Replaced an old ISIS BB with this. Was really surprised at how easy it was to install, although I did need to pickup the correct BB wrench from Park (BBT-9).

              Comments about Shimano XT SM-BB70 Bottom Bracket:

              This is a good one to start thinking in going pro... XT series matches with most of my expectations within light weight durability and performance. It's easy to install and almost maintainance free.
              Notice that manufacturer does not recommend to dismantle it or try to fix it, but you must know that the only problem this stuff has is that bearings would get krunchi with poor maintenance and proper cleaning, but if it's so, you can find replacing bearings by half price or less and you can extract bearings off the cups and you'll have brand new bearings for one other 10000 miles!

                  Used this BB along with an XT crankset and it's very smooth. Easy to install. You need the external BB tool that grips around the outside teeth.

                    Comments about Shimano XT SM-BB70 Bottom Bracket:

                    I like the design of the Shimano MTB crankset and BB. I like this BB as it is easy for a home mechanic to maintain and replace with only a single special tool. I've used a Shimano drivetrain on all my bikes, so I can't comment for comparison on durability. I tend to get around 1200-1500 miles out of the XT BBs that I have had.

                      This product is pretty good. It says it's not serviceable, but you can pop off the seals and relube the bearing. Don't overtighten.

                      Price was comparable...ordered enough stuff for free shipping....Direct replacement on my 2008 Jamis Dakar XAM 1.0. The first Bottom Bracket lasted 4 years through East Coast Mud and winters so I can't complain.
