    The green bike started whining recently - "Why did the black bike get a new bb and not me? I wanna new bb! :cry:

    So what is the good word on an external, threaded bb30 style for my Bronson? Price-wise the XTs look like I could stock a couple in the cabinet, while the Chris King's would be a one off. Somewhere in between, what, has worked for y'all?

    Hope makes a serviceable BB that fits BSA threaded frames.

    King’s will last forever. 35k SS miles on mine. Service them once a year.

    Shimano’s seem to be hit or miss. Sometimes they last....sometimes they don’t.
