    What bottom bracket?

    I need to replace my BB on my SC Blur Classic. I'm running the ISIS model, not by choice cause I would replace it with an external crank set given half a chance, so right now I'm looking for a replacement part and wondered what you recommended. I've tried a few out in recent years, Truvativ Gigapipe (aweful!!), Raceface Signature (pretty good), and looked at the reviews on MTBR. My ride and my style -

    * XL Blur Classic (2004)
    * 6'2" 84kgs
    * ride cross country, 100 kms/week, take the odd small dropoff (3' at most)

    What ISIS BB 113mm would you recommend? Ta

    yeah, that's a sweet piece of kit, although not ISIS. However, I'm leaning towards a new crankset to get longer wear and tear from the BB. Thanks for the tip.
