I would find out what tool is required to fit/remove and take that into consideration if you wan't to do it yourself. With an ISIS bottom bracket FSA use the more or less standard Shimano tool where as the Truvativ bottom bracket requires a proprietry tool. I don't know what tools are required for outboard bearings but its worth finding out about. They both make great bearings.

Regards, Anthony
