    Any Luck Token Isis Bottom Bracket

    It is super light but don't know about the reliability..... any thoughts or experience. I am going to try one on a 07 GF Rig with the stock cranks.

    Don't Do It!

    I had one of the scandium spindle Token bb's and I sheared one ISIS spline right off the spindle. I'm 75 kg, had only used it for light duty (non race) XC and had it mounted on a Yeti ARC so it wasn't being subjected to big hits or anything even remotely extreme. Yes, it's light but I'd stay the hell away.

    If i were going to buy any ISIS bb, my advice would be to take the route I did after the demise of the Token and get an all stainless steel SKF 600 FR. Yes, you pay a bit in grams but the thing has brilliant bearings purpose designed by arguably the best bearing experts on the planet. Brilliant bearings, brilliant seals, strong stainless steel spindle shaft. I'll be very surprised if it ever fails.
