Strengths:    light weight and eazy install

Weaknesses:    not good enough - 3000 km is not up to industry standards

Bottom Line:   
Bought a new Ritchey TC Breakaway bike with full Durace. Put about 3000KM on it and the Shimano bottom bracket Sm-FC7800 BC1.37X24 road FK started clicking and creaking - after some trouble shooting determined it was the BB bearings. I'm very disapointed in Shimano who I had had a high level of respect and faith in wrt their products. I am now much more cautious when looking at their products.

Strengths:    Less expensive than previous Shimano BB's. Easy to install.

Weaknesses:    Bearings are not up to task.

Bottom Line:   
Easy to install. Poor durability. Replaced with Phil Wood and later Enduro Ceramic and bearing failures quit. Prior to Phil Wood bearings, usually got less than 2000 miles. Bearings are to small for the load. The BB's do not stand up to overhaul either.
