    SKF on my Prophet for over 3 years. Perfect. The original Truvativ BB was 1 year. Went through 2 of those before I switched.
    My name is Chris and I ride a Prophet 650b with a Lefty.

    Combined with massive seal drag and and axle heavy enough to double as a small freighter boat anchor...I hated mine when I ran ISIS

    SKF still going strong after a number of years now. Race face lasted one year under the same conditions.
