    Praxis Works HT2 BBs - durability / quality?

    Not seen these till recently and I'm looking for a more durable BB than the Shimano HT2. Hope seems the obvious option but I'm less keen on a direct axle/ bearing mount - it'll either be a tight fit or a source of creaks? Maybe not justified, but I saw the Praxis BB uses sealed 6805 bearings with a top hat fitting and thought it may be worth a try. They're either great VFM, or not that great based on the RRP.

    Bearing durability is a bit of 'how longs a bit of string' question, but 2-3000 miles of geared MTB use for non-technical / no big-hit riding in mixed weather is what I was hoping for. ie ~100 miles a week, ~6 months use.

    If you're looking for a durable thread in BB, a Chris King is a no brainer. Praxis makes some good stuff though.

    Yeah, King is the go-to.. Hope's just a cheaper option. Praxis almost seems too cheap to be great, but even just easily replaceable 6805 bearings in a std cup is appealing.
