Speed P8 Bottom Bracket Replacement
 
I've posted about this problem before with a clicking problem on the bottom bracket.
The BB specs;

Chin Haur
CH51-68
113.5L
BC1.37 - 24T

It turns out, the clicking was NOT the bearings but the housing. The housing is not
a one piece construction like most bottom brackets but a 2 pieces pressed together.
The problem is, the pieces became loose and separated.

I finally replaced it with a Shimano 115mm shaft BB and it seems to work pretty well.

Chin Haur B.B. is crap
 
I,too, have replaced the Chin Haur bb on my two Dahons. They are crap! I used a much shorter spindle.
