    Fifteen.G Bottom Bracket

    I have been running the Fifteen.G cranks (double/bash) and the Fifteen.G bottom bracket since April. I was riding Saturday and started getting a loud buzz almost every time I hit something that created a lot of down force (corners, jumps, gullies). It almost sounded like my tire was rubbing something. But then after further inspection I figured out it was definitely the BB. It would buzz then when I spun the cranks a couple of turns, it would stop. Is it shot? Anybody else had this problem?

    They are very easy to open up iirc. Pop the plastic dust cover off and you can remove the grease shield inside. You can do it right on the bike, but you will have to slide the cranks out of the frame (obviously). They may be dry and a nice packing with grease could make them happy. Why not take a look?
