hes probably just trying to find a bb worthy enough to be trendy so he can be like all the other wanna-bes and have his bike built to someone elses specs and recomendations becuase for some reason or another thats the cool thing to do.

1.37"x24tpi (Euro), and a bag full of replacement bearings for when they get smashed.

And your point? I've smashed 'em, so obviously they *can* be destroyed. American bearings can be destroyed too, the same laws of physics apply. Most people don't realize that cartridges can often be replaced without replacing the entire BB unit, that's the beauty of BMX cranksets (vs most road and mountain cranksets which require specialized tools, bearing presses and the like). I like Euro 'cause they're easily serviced, bearings can be replaced and since all other things are pretty much equal, it just looks trick.
