    Anyone tried both XTR 960 and Deus BBs?

    Does anyone tried both XTR M960 and RF Deus BBs?
    I got a chance to pick between Deus BB and XTR BB for my XTR crank.
    Don't know which one to keep...
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance!

    Thanks, you are right. I took the Deus/Atlas BB off and replaced it with Shimano one.
    and found out the brand new Shimano BB has less rotation resistance than
    2-month-break-in-period Deus BB
    Let's see if it's gonna last now.

    That's a switch. The original '03 XTR BB's got really bad reviews for having crappy bearing seals. Sounds like they've fixed that problem, then. That's good to know, since I've got an '03 XTR BB...

    Look where you want to go. This is as true in life as it is in mtbiking.
