    Shimano UN-54 BB

    Would it be a good idea to use my old metal mounting ring instead of the new plastic ring on a BB replacement?
    Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

    The plastic ring is supposed to be much less prone to creaking. They do break easier, though. Test thread it into the BB and chase the threads if necessary.
