    Bottom bracket recommendations for G-Boxx bikes

    I need a new bottom bracket for my G-Boxx nucleon thingy. I assume I'm stuck with ISIS at 100mm. Any recommendations? I've found a FSA Platinum Pro DH. Any good?

    Or is there a way of getting something more durable, like an external bottom bracket, there?

    If you're stuck with ISIS, maybe have a look at the SKF FR600 bottombracket (http://www.skf.com/portal/skf/home/i...17215&lang=en). They use rollerbearings on the driveside and they're far more durable than your average ISIS BB.

    Alas, they don't do 100mm ones, only 68 and 73mm

    I've got two RaceFace Signatures which I use in rotation. I get anywhere between 6 and 12 months from the replaceable bearings. Replacing the bearings is a rubbish job which is why having two is a good idea, not sure if they are available anymore, I've had mine for four years.
    I've never tried any of the others.
