Love my Eddie, but.....
I went with the E13 BB and cranks. Hate them and the BB30... It fills with water, the bearings sit in it, it creaks.... Grim.....
Wish it was a standard external BB.............
Otherwise, it's a hoot......
Interesting, I've ridden mine (Sram GPX bb for PF) in all sorts of conditions and it has been trouble free.
This may be a total waste of time but I can't help but think that you might amount to something someday.
Ditch the E13 cranks... Awful BB. Expensive, proprietary rings.

It seems a bit off putting to praise a RaceFace BB after some of my previous experiences, but I know a few other guys on Kona Raijins with the same results as me.
That's brilliant info, thankyou....
The E13's are sadly getting ditched, lovely as they look they suck.....
Will explore the race face option today
