    RaceFace Evolve XC BB replacement options

    Hey Folks,
    Last Spring I bought a Giant NRS1 that came with RaceFAce Evolve XC Cranks. However, I just brought her in from the cold to do some indoor roller riding and noticed that the Bottom Bracket bearing anre going. Not wanting to buy the RaceFAce BB and have the same problem next year what are my options without replacing the cranks. I just want a decent set of BB bearins in the $75 range that will work with the RF Evolve XC. Can you please suggest something worthwhile?
    Thank You!!

    Second for Enduro. I have them on all of my bikes and they last. Buy the web grease when you order to keep the bearing packed and protected.
