Strength:

Ceramic bearing are like BUTTAH!

Weakness:

THe plastic spacers can be a bit finicky to get the axle through, but once in, it's golden.
More threads on the cups would be comforting.

Super low drag, bike actually feels a bit faster!
Do not put side loading on your bottom bracket bearings folks! if you have race face cranks, and are unsure of the number of spacers, leave a tiny bit of side to side play. IT's better than sending the bearings to an early grave by side loading them.

Strength:

Reasonable sale price
Looks smart.
In theory, replaceable bearings.

Weakness:

Seized up after just FIVE rides!

Smart CNC'd cups don't make up for totally inadequate weather sealing. Despite all the hype about external BB bearings being better, very few manufacturers seem to be able to provide a product that is durable. I had an XT square tapered BB on an old bike that lasted well over 2000 miles of XC riding. I'm buying a Hope BB next to see if it lasts any longer than this rubbish.
