    RF Signature DH or FSA MegaEXO Platinum ISIS?

    RF Signature DH or FSA MegaEXO Platinum ISIS?

    the RF has replaceable bearings, but the FSA has External Bearings, i dunno which one to get, any opinions?

    i'm leaning towards the RF, cuz of the replaceable bearings, but the FSA should be much more durable.

    EDIT: RF, not DF

    i thought i read that the FSA MegaExo ISIS never went into full production (well, prematurely discontinued) because of reliability issues. this is all hearsay, so i cannot be certain of any facts. but it does seem odd that FSA no longer officially sell it, and i've only seen them on ebay. correct me if i'm wrong.

    i guess some Qs are: what is your riding style and priority? reliability/durability, weight, other? and what have you used before and why do you want to change? given the big range of ISIS BBs out there, why narrowed down to these two?

    weight i dont care about, i ride street, FR, DJ, and DH, so i need a strong BB. i dont weigh that much, but i crushed the BB's in 2 of my Square Taper cranks, so i know that i might have some problems with ISIS.

    reliability is always nice, but the RF has replaceable bearings, so thats nice. i've heard that people dont crush as many bearings in External, so i found the FSA one.

    fair enough. your needs are beyond my experience (as i ride XC), but i'm looking at the FSA website and they offer a number of BBs. depending upon the BB shell width (68 vs 73mm) and spindle length, something like the (internal bearing) Platinum Pro Megaquad may suit, or the Platinum DH.

    i'm bailing to leave it to the suitably experienced players here!
