    I have one. I installed it a month or two back. And although I don't have a tons of miles of it, it's SILKY smooth.

    I'm using a Token Tiramic BB30. I thought it'd be cheap and a bit rubbish, but has turned out quite good.
    It's not broken yet which is a good sign. Pretty smooth, usually gets 4 hour cycles on the weekend.

    I just saw this pretty in-depth review here, which says some great things about it, and I just ordered one for myself from Pricepoint.

    Yup, rolls buttery smooth going on a year. I don't ride in the wet so I can't speak of wet weather durablity.

    NOTE: the ones selling on Price Point don't include spacers.

    Just received and installed mine. My first impression is that it is pretty high quality and is super smooth. I personally had good luck with the cheep shimano bb's, in terms of durability, so I don't have anything against them, but the Wheels MFG Ceramic Bottom Bracket MTN is definitely a much better bb.
