The Little Things
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
Sometimes the little things can make a big difference. In our sport millimeters matter. I changed out my bottom bracket, not due to any specific need, but just the itch to do right by my trusty steed.
With that, I upgraded from a Shimano Ultegra BB to the Dura-Ace. The project in and of itself was very straight forward. Components came out and went in smooth as butter...
Winter weather is upon us in MD and the bike has been committed to the Hammer trainer until further notice. (Crap roads+wintry mix weather+poor roads=NO THANK YOU!) Been really enjoying some serious SufferFest workouts, and this bottom bracket is getting a serious breaking in period. It's fantastic! It feels as smooth as can be and those NM workouts are having me put some serious watts through those cranks. Nothing of note to report aside from utter satisfaction.
A nice upgrade for an insignificant cost. I enjoy doing my own wrenching, so this was fantastic buy!
