Big is relative
Just when I thought that my Phil Wood bottom bracket had survived the 43 straight days of rain, I find out the bearings are trashed. I had a noise that I first attributed to worn cleats on my SPD sandals, then to the pedals. I would have never thought that my PW bb was bad. I pulled the crankarms and could barely turn the spindle by hand. It made crunchy sounds. I emailed PW tonight to get a shipping number to mail it in for a bearing replacement. $35 seems like a pretty good deal to get it overhauled with new bearings. Has anyone here ever had to send theirs in?
