    Lx Ht2

    I just installed them. I previously ran LX splined cranks. The BB's would last almost two
    seasons. We'll see how long the outboard bearings last. They seem a little stiffer
    but nothing major. They don't shift as quick to my middle ring as my '03 LX's, maybe
    its my chainline, i'll try changing the spacers. Maybe Shimano changed the ramps
    and pins. They are easy to install, and easy to pull them for maint. and cleaning.
