    Deore vs. XT outboard BB?

    What's the difference between a Deore and XT bottom bracket? Thanks

    I recently swapped out my deore bb with an XT bb. Now I didn't do an engineer type assessment, but I did not see a lot of difference. XT have the same plastic interface piece as the deore. My LBS likes me and gave me a sweet deal on the XT. The XT is creaking worse or the spindle on my deore cranks is creaking on the XT bearings worse or ?...than the deore bb ever did? I plan on purchasing enduro bearings asap to replace the original bearings in order to get that plastic piece out of the system.
