Are you going to be riding it on the street? I wouldn't bother if that's the case, and even more so if the weather/environmental condition in your area tend to be wet or dusty. Just stick to sealed cartridge bearings unless it's your velodrome bike. Even then cartridges don't hold you back. You won't notice any difference when you're riding your bike. In fact, you probably won't even be able to tell when the bike is on the workstand either. Loose bearing BBs and hubs are for guys chasing tenths and thousandths of a second. Everyone else should just stick with cartridge.
