Strengths:    Looks good
Not the lightest but not bad either
Good poduct for the money

Weaknesses:    It finally died after 2 1/2 years and 12,000+ miles, otherwise none

Bottom Line:   
It has been a good product. It's lasted 12,000+ miles without giving me problem of any kind. Looks good, relativly light. I'd say that I got my money out of it.

Strengths:    Still spins like butter after 25,000 of brutality... (I rode 12 double centuries last year, and used this one on at least half of them...)

Weaknesses:    Price, but it is MORE THAN WORTH THE MONEY!

Bottom Line:   
This is now on my TT bike, because I got a crappy SLK mega Exo for my main racing bike.. (I did not intend the new one to suck, it just does!) Anyway, I am going to buy a new one, and buy a set of Strong Lights to go with it because the BB ROCKS!

Strengths:    everything machined is immaculate. I have seen or felt no stiffness or seen leaking at the seals. I am impressed

Weaknesses:    I would have liked the directions to more clearly explained shifting for chainline and derailleur drop-spacing.

Bottom Line:   
I bought and installed this bb on my wife's Litespeed. It is beautifully machined with everything thought out nicely. It came with both the steel (mounting) and alloy (usually on) bolts. I installed and then shifted to the drive side 1/4 inch to accomodate the front derailleur's inward movement. It works absolutely beautifully, very easy to mount. Mine is ISIS.
