    Installed enduro bearings in bb

    After riding 77 miles in the mud last month, the bb bearings were toast in my E13 cranks.
    Ordered a set of enduro bearings, $23 I believe?

    Used a long thin punch with a sharp tip to knock them out of the cups (others have said you need a blind bearing puller but this worked great).

    New bearings are so smooth, and came with better shield, hopefully will keep the crap out better than the stock E13 ones.
    Riding.....

    If you subject them to similar conditions it'll be interesting to see how they fare.

    I just did the samething. Hope BB installed, after one month of riding, I figured I check things out down there, cuz of lots of creek crossings. Bearings were devoid of Hope's blue grease, so I packed'em full. Too late...2-more months later, driveside was toast. In went some Enduro Zero's....Buttery goodness.

    I actually couldn't beleive I could feel the difference. Enduro for all my bearings in the future...

    Just purchased enduro press fit bb... Glad to hear it'll be worth it.

    I put a new bb in my Mukluk this summer. I was amazed at how much sand and grime was in the shell. I wondered how it all got there and settled on the big hole in the seatstay bridge. I wrapped it with electric tape.

    I need new BB bearings... mine was seized 2 winters ago... I spent an hour with WD40, and some grease, and got it spinning again, and just haven't bothered to replace the bearings still.

    Still spins fine, it's just noisy Haha.

    That is a good point....I might put some tape over the hole in mine too, see if that helps....
