I killed my stock bottom bracket in 6 months, replaced it with a Chris King. I went with the King because it's going on a bike that is going to see any and all conditions, I wanted one that I could easily maintain and fix if needed.

I destroyed the stock BB from my 2013 Moonlander. One of the cups is completely destroyed so I bought the Shimano Saint BB. The Thread fits but the cups are too short. So what are the options in 2016, besides the original (Surly part# CR8629)?
I looked up the Chris King one, but that looks like it also has the short cups, similar to the Shimano ones.

I kind of want a Chris King BB on my Pugsley... But I know Surly upgraded the OD BB to "Enduro Labyrinth Bearings." How good are these bearings, and is there any real reason to replace the stock BB?

My use includes long-distance touring in remote areas. Reliability is my only metric.
