    Is it a 2011? XT crank? If so, I'm surprised it's already bad. Press-fit I think. The LBS should be able to help you.

    Yes, its a 2011 XT press fit. It has about 1400miles on it in some very wet/muddy conditions.

    I know the LBS can help but would prefer to replace it myself.

    There just does not seem to be a lot of choices for after market BB's.

    I decided it was not worth the hassle so have got the LBS to fit a new Shimano BB. $60 supply and install is hard to beat.

    krf350lv, How have you liked the Enduro X-15. I am looking at getting one myself. What did you have before? Big difference? Thanks for your feedback.
