Digging through some old bike parts the other day I came across a Race Face Turbine square taper BB. I remember this BB as one that worked really well but the bearings were a pain to change. A couple of great things about it include adjustable chainline and the replaceable bearings.

So, the question....How do I get the bearings out of the cups without ruining the cups and then where would one find bearings to fit? Turns out that on my Black Sheep I go through BB's quite quickly because of the torque of riding in the mountains SS and the fact that Sh*tmano is about the only maker of realistically priced square taper BB's and they've gone to plastic cups which crack within a couple of weeks.

Thanks for the info. if there is any available. Anyone happen to have old instructions that they'd be willing to scan? Race Face doesn't seem to keep old instructions online for some unknown reason.
