    Bottom Bracket Rebuild

    I have a Race Face Signature XS ISIS bottom bracket that is just beginning to exhibit a bit of drag when you spin it with your fingers. Race Face claims the bearings are "removable, servicable and replacable". Is it worth the time, money and effort? Are there any special tools required? Can the average LBS do the rebuild? Or should I just buy a new bottom bracket? Thanks. DanO

    This must be BB week. Every other question is about BB repacking.

    Have it serviced.

    I have no doubt the LBS will tell me I need a new BB when all I wish to do is replace the bearings.
