    I believe any half decent and properly installed BB will last years with no problems.

    You clearly never used one of Shimano’s first generation HT2 BBs in the Peak District then. It would have been an interesting exercise in the mechanical power of faith.

    Anyone tried one of those supposedly indestructible ones from RWS, the XD-15 thing? There was a review, I think, on Bikeradar saying they ran one all winter with the seals removed and it was still fine… Mind you at $199 I’d want it to outlast me let alone the bike.

    Thanks for the replies.

    For the record…

    Bottom bracket shell has been chased and faced.
    cups torqued into frame correctly.
    cranks preload cap done up correctly to.

    bike has done two off road rides since fitting and the rest has been riding to work which is about 700m each way!

    not lasted long at all really?
