SRAM GXP Bottom Bracket Upgrade?
I have no experience with external bottom brackets. As luck would have it, in the same week I got a new road bike with SRAM cranks and a set of SRAM Omniums for my track bike, both with basic GXP BBs. All of my previous experience was with Dura-Ace Octalink (sealed and needle) and Campy Record square taper (sealed and ball).
A few people almost anecdotally say, "You are gonna want to upgrade that BB soon."
Will someone care to elaborate as to why (feel? durability?) and also what would be a suitable upgrade? Does it have to be SRAM or are others compatible?
