Weaknesses:    difficult removal and servicing.

Bottom Line:   
came with the bike frame. within 200 miles of riding, bb started to grind and creak. had to lube the cranks to help improve from the insidious sounds coming from it. can't really remove the bearings to service. this helped for a while to suppress it. however, by the 500th mile, it was unbearable. tried to remove to replace with the appropriate tools, a park tool bb90. the plastic cup rim that the bearing rested on broke off. the bearings came off with it, leaving the rest of the cup within the bb shell. i have yet to successfully get that cup out. the other is just as stubborn to come out. so destroyed bb and nonfunctioning bike.
give me a chris king bb any day. i can service that without great difficulty. but, they don't make the press fit yet.
