Submitted by SSbuffo a Weekend Warrior from south florida, USA

Date Reviewed: August 3, 2011

Strengths:    Adjustable and maintainable. Smart, sealed design. Bearings replaceable. Submerge it and it can be taken apart and cleaned.

Weaknesses:    Does take some maintenance skills and the specific wrench to loose the lock ring.

Bottom Line:   
Wish someone would sell these retail, I like being able to "tweak" my BBs to get every last watt to the wheels, and to use good waterproof grease in abundance. Disposable "cartridge" types just don't cut it with me.
