PROS: Easy To Install
CONS: Durability, Heavy
The guesstimated millage I got from the original BB might have been somewhere in the 3000-3500 km (1900-2200 miles) range ridden in some 120 days. To be fair, my commute involves almost 700 meters (23000 ft.) of more or less continuous descending on a highway in the morning and the same amount of climbing, mashing the pedals on gravel roads and single tracks at night. Granted, this may be putting a little more of strain on this product than the manufacturer may have intended for it.
My main complain, besides its questionable durability, is about the limited compatibility of this product. There is virtually no room for an upgrade if you intend to stick with your original crankset or vice versa. This BB is cheap though so I bought this replacement to ride it into the ground with the original chainrings. Once they give up their ghost I'll replace the BB and the crankset for something more suitable for trail riding.
After some consideration I am giving 3 stars. This BB is really inexpensive, after all.
PROS: Works Ok
CONS: Limited Durability, Limited Compatibility
My main complaint, besides about the questionable durability, is about the lack of any room for upgrades. This BB appears to be compatible only with a limited number of cranks and vice versa. I bought another one of these only to ride the original chainrings of my Specialized Crosstrail Comp into the ground. Once they give up a ghost I plan to replace the BB and the crankset for something more suitable for trail riding.
