Thought i'd give the SS a once over before the FOD ride on Sunday and the BB was pretty much seized solid. It's eventually loosened up but feels a tad rough to say the least.
This BB was fitted in Spring and has done a mighty 260 miles. They last BB i had that went tits up quickly was also a Raceface (900 dry miles on the FS).
Why can't Raceface get a BB correct? I seem to recall that there is now a guarantee on their BB's but why would i want to bother given that it'll just give up the ghost again in a few months? My XT ones seem to last much longer and they're not exactly expensive.
Can you peel off the seals on Raceface and regrease them like you can on some of the XT ones? Chainset/BB is a Ride SS if that helps at all.
I think this will have been my last ever Raceface transmission component purchase....
Oh, and the bike has been hosed down to clean it but never with a pressure hose. So much for the simplicity of SS!
