Bottom Bracket Smooth, but...
I've got a Truvativ Giga Pipe Ti bottom braket that turns very smoothly, but with a noticable resistance when compared to my old Ultegra 9-spd bottom brackets. It's been that way for over 2000 miles and turns the same installed or not.
So, I bought a Truvativ Giga Pipe team SL and it feels similar; smooth, but with resistance. Like it's in thick grease.
Did a crank conversion on a friend's bike and have a left over FSA Platinum bottom bracket. It has noticably less resistance, but maybe not as easily as the Ultegra.
Are these Truvativ bottom brackets steeling what little power I have?!
What's a good choice for an ISIS BB for road use?
