I seem to be going through Bottom Brackets pretty quickly nowerdays
I'm running Truvativ cranks (GXP type)
I was running the standard SRAM ones, which more recently have been lasting about 6-9 months
Since the design changed they don't seem to last as long as they used to
So I thought I'd give a Hope one a go (stainless steel type)
So 8 months down the line, the bearings have given up, so no better than the standard GXP
I did drop Hope a line, but as this is a wear & tear item they're not able to help (which is fair enough)
Have I just been unlucky? How long should I realistically expect the bearings to last?
As a guide I ride 1-2 times a week on the bike in question vitually every week.
The Hope BB was fitted in September 2012
At the moment I'm thinking of replacing the bearings in the Hope BB, then getting rid of it
Does anyone have a good alternative BB which the bearings do last well in?
