I think my BB may be going out on my 08 Jamis Komodo 1. I have some poping and creeking that I can feel in the pedals when I am in the power stroke. At first I could only feel it when I was about 45 degrees past TDC but now I am feeling it a little earlier and also at the bottom of the stroke. At the same time I do not have any play in my cranks no matter what way or how hard I try to twist and pull on them.
That being said, if it is my BB, I am looking for a suitable replacement. I was thinking of the Shimano UN55. I am currently running the stock TH Powerdrive, sealed
cartridge, 73 x 113, from FSA. Any thoughts?
While trying to look up some reviews on the UN55 I came across a old forum discussing ISIS, square tapered, BBs. It basically said that while they have thier place they are not very strong unless you shell out some big bucks for the high quality stuff. Well, I don' thave big bucks. Should I change out my BB to a different style all together? One that is more modern and stought? If so what crank and BB combo do you recommend?
Edit: Just realized the UN55 won't work as my crankset is not a square taper. It is the splined one. Is that the ISIS spindle?
