    Strengths:    marketed very well

    Weaknesses:    just about...actually no, definetly everything else.

    Bottom Line:   
    I have gonethrough 3 bottombrackets in less than a year, i think that the isis thing is a good idea, but nobody is building a bb. that is worth a crap,Why? Im not one to spout off about shimano but i had not had problems with their bearings someone recently told me that it has to do with the outside diameter of the spindle, and not enough space for bearings, either way , something has to be changed, i cant afford this crap, Im using tru vativs dh gigapipe bb now, it weighs like 450 grams or something, and has double bearings both sides, i hope Chris king comes out with something soon

    Its a piece of JUNK, unfortunatly I've run out of ISIS manufactures so its back to Shimano

    Strengths:    None

    Weaknesses:    Not fit to be used in mountain bikes. This product will leave you stranded deep in the jungles of Malaysia. The bearings were ground to bits in just 6 months of riding. Pop it into your commuter bike if u want but NEVER use this product if u are a serious off-roader. Looks like it's back good ol reliable Shimanos.

    Bottom Line:   
    DONT BUY THIS PIECE OF JUNK

    Strengths:    nice looking

    Bottom Line:   
    used this bb for about 6 months.....immediately had problems this crazy creaking sound when i rode the bike.....seems the crank bolts kept backing out?? i am running truvative stylo cranks and was worried about walling out the mating holes......put locktite on the bolts.....creaking still existed....finally took it out and put my old shimano back in and no more noise. maybe the spindle is mt sized correctly??????
    for 25 bucks it would be a nice piece if it did'nt make so much noise.
