    Shimano BB Preload systems

    I'm curious to get some opinions on the new 2007 Shimano XTR bearing loading system. I'm looking at buying a new XTR Crank and am comfortable with the 2006 Shimano bearing loading system. Any input on if the new system is good or bad?

    It was just about the easiest and fastest thing to set up I've experienced with external BB setups. Mere moments and it is setup to run smooth and without lateral play. Blows the doors off the Race Face Deus for speedy installation and setup.

    I've heard mixed reviews on RF external setups. Any comparison to previous Shimano External BB's? I'm not displeased with the way my old system sets up but like progress if it really works. Also don't care to be a beta tester for shimano.
