Strengths:    Smooth and quite. Nice materials.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
My Shimano Deore bottom bracket developed a clicking noise after only a couple hundred miles. Did a lot of research before purchasing my Hope bottom bracket. I expected the new Hope bracket to be quite but I did not expect it to have made such a big difference in my bike. It was well worth the extra $$ for a top notch bottom bracket.

Strengths:    Rebuildable
Stainless cartridges

Weaknesses:    A tad pricey

Bottom Line:   
Another quality product from the blokes at Hope. Typically rebuildable and durable, this BB will be another quality piece on any bike. The black ones on my bikes match the Saint cranks waaaay better than the supplied Shimano gold ones and operate far more smoothly. i ride a freeride hardtail and do some trials, and this BB has held up quite well. i went through Shimano BB's on a pretty disappointing frequency, but some of that may have been due to misadjustment.
