    I've been running FSA Platinum Pro Ti for around a year, though I've read mixed reviews on this b/b I've had no issues,good value as well,lasted longer than my Raceface b/b.

    Control Tech

    Makes the BB02-SC which is a carbon fiber body with a Scandium axle. Seems like weight starts at 124g. Here's the link.

    Just click on Bottom Brackets at the right of the screen.

    Hope this helps!

    scandium axles make me nervous.

    Ive been using the Am Classic on my cyclocross bike for a year now, the bearings went bad and Am classic shipped me a new one without issue, its a steel axle and the weight for 113mm is 154 grams.

    Im using the Control Tech scandium bottom bracket....i've had no issues with the spindle, but the bearings have worn out too fast. The FSA platinium Ti are pretty solid.

    megaquad

    I've been using the FSA Platinum Pro Ti Megaquad for 1 year on my race bike. It is everybit as good as an XT m760 bearing set. Absolutely no problems, runs smooth, tight, and free. Weight, BB alone = 202g, 2X aluminum bolts and steel washers = 20g.

    I've always wanted to shave weight in this area, but the thing has been so reliable I just don't see that it is worth the risk for 50g.

    I did buy an AmClassic - it felt and installed like such a piece of junk I immediately returned it, but that is just me and maybe it was a mistake.

    I've got a year on the AC with no problems. I just ordered another for my 29er and it's smoooth. It's inexpensive, steel axled and bearings are replaceable. I found that you do need to follow the tightening specs closely, though. If you don't it won't roll smooth.
