Strengths:    Light and spins nice

Weaknesses:    Poor cup design as the Park tool comes up against the BB shell face and you think it's tight but it's not. Need to back off on tool and keep tightening. After all of this, had to use teflon tape to stop BB from creaking. Have FSA megaquad ti BB on other bike, and it's much better.

Bottom Line:   
Okay for the price paid. Have about 3000 miles on it. We'll see how long bearings last.

Strengths:    cheap and light

Weaknesses:    Lousy cup design and creaking

Bottom Line:   
It's light and spins okay but the type cup it uses is prone to loosen due to design and the tool used. It also creaks, but I used teflon tape on the removeable cup and so far so good. I have the FSA megaquad ti BB on another bike, and it's much better in design and more expensive but worth it in the long run.

Strengths:    Weight, Trick. Butter Smooth, Silent...

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
Smooth and silent, I installed this on a new frame I built and it is totally silent and butter smooth. Along with a 10spd Ultegra drive train and new Dura Ace chain this is the best performance I ever experienced.
