Not that I want to go ISIS, but it's kind of heading this way. Here's the situation, the wife / stoker needed longer 175 cranks. We currently have square taper Race Faces in 175 / 170 and she wanted to keep that look. She found a set of 175 / 175 ISIS Race Face cranks and bought them.
I've been trying to decide on BB's to fit them to the bike. The horror stories of failures abound, but then there are also some that last a while.
I'm kind of narrowed down to what seems to be the SKF's or the Truvative GigapipeTeam DH.
The Truvative sounds good on paper for a tandem since it has 2 bearings per spindle end. The SKF, while not having the two bearings per end uses a roller or needle bearing to support the drive end.
Appears most others use either 2 or 3 bearings total.
Regardless, I'm open to suggestions.
Any thoughts either good or bad?
