Better quality sealed BB costs more to start but will be more cost efficient in the long run.
Had a Phil Wood BB get a bit loose after 30,000 miles. Phil replaced it, for free.
The other Phil lasted us 64,000 miles and still ran smoother than Campy when we sold that tandem.
Put 57,000 miles on 2 Syncross BB on another tandem, still working fine when we sold that tandem too.
Anybody can make something cheaper, but quality lasts . . .
