Strengths:    Light, works great with the turbine 2x10 cranks, easy install

Weaknesses:    doesn't seem as durable as Chris King or Shimano

Bottom Line:   
I installed this with my turbine SL cranks (which as others have stated are the dogs bollox!) and it works well and is lighter than the BB I replaced. Seems sturdy enough so far, but when installing it didn't seem as robust as a Chris King or other "built to last" BBs. I haven't had any problems yet in 6 months of riding. We will see if there is a tradeoff of durability vs. weight.

Strengths:    Looks only, the crankset that comes with this bb is awesome!

Weaknesses:    Junk, after only 1 hard ride of uphill, ticking noise appeared. Maybe coz of my weight, 100 kgs geared. Non drive side bearing was junk, not smooth as the day i bought it. The cups thread are also junk, difficult to screw to the frame compared to other brands

Bottom Line:   
Replace this bb after a few months used, shimano bb way better.

Strengths:    Looks and price

Weaknesses:    Does not stand the test of time.

Bottom Line:   
The crank that this bb comes with is outstanding. The bb itself though is a dud, I love raceface and actually use there atlas bb now (much better) but the turbine bb only lasted 4 months before it was blown out.
Stick with the atlas or shimano bb's

Strengths:    Light Weight
Unique Design
Instructions on the sleeve

Weaknesses:    Really only lasted three months, after grinding sound out of the non-drive side bearing appeared. Sent back to Race Face, one month later received the bottom bracket with the same issue as when I originally returned it for the warranty repair.

Bottom Line:   
Junk in my book!
