 Easy set up, runs smooth. It works seamlessly with the Truvativ specified crank arms. For the money, its very hard to beat. Haven't had any problems with mine bending or any other complaints. Just be sure there is NO play in the actual BB housing and bearings and tighten it up properly. As long as thats done, its perfect.

 Great bb its taken everything. Only problem i ever had was the shell stripping when i was trying to install it or take off for cleaning so be careful not to use to much pressure! other than that its a great bb

 This is a very durable BB. I can easily recommend this product.

Pro's: Durability, Price, and SRAM's Customer service.

Con's: Weight, it is beefy as all hell and that predominantly dictates the weight.

 Solid BB, that will last if taken care off, simple to fit, and strong as hell. The perfect plug- in and forget BB, also wicked price for what you get, beautifly made with that quality that you get with Truvativ

 Great bb its taken everything. Cheap,Strong,Smooth, maintenance-free, external bearings look sweet and provides extra crankarm/chainstay clearance. Overall, excellent, indestructible BB for the price!

 Works pretty well and runs pretty smoothly. Only thing is you can only run it with Truvativ cranks so I guess if you have a Truvativ crank you end up with this BB.
Good BB for the price. Doesnt wear too quickly either

 Cheap, strong, going into third season on my everywhere trailbike. Loves big hits. Mathes perfectly with Bontrager Earl Cranks which are also strong and cheap. I use these on my DH rig as well.

 This bottom bracket is pretty shite. Bearing life is ok, but the cranks just keep slipping off. When the bearings do go, the go quickly which is annoying. Generally bad quality, does'nt last long and really overpriced!

 strong. Had Two of them. Good for the money. Had the Howitzer Crank set along with the Bottom Bracket. Very popular among the people in New York.

 Good if your just starting or on a budget, its strong and lasts!

Shame that your limited to truvativ cranksets, but chainrings can be changed!

 Durable and smooth, ok it weighs a bit but when that weight is centered in your bottom bracket it's going to give you a lower centre of gravity.
