    Sealed Bottom Bracket

    So these are sealed and you don't need to put any grease on these? Just lube the threads and screw the new one in? If so this is just too easy.

    Make sure you grease and torque. If you ever remove it, it's often easier (and less damage-prone) to remove the cartridge BEFORE the NDS cup.

    It can be easy to crack the plastic cup. I've done it several times, but I'm an idiot.

    When you pull the right side out, you take the tension off the let side cup.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.
