    RaceFace BB gone after 25 miles

    Anyone had issues with theirs? Iíve had my 18 Capra 27 CF Pro for a week and my drive side bearing exploded. Started with a creak and within a few minutes it was making all kinds of noises.

    Googling the Bb it sounds like others have experienced short life with theirs too but not as short as this. Iím a heavy guy so Iím hoping this isnít going to be the norm. If it continues are there any better replacement options without changing to different crank arms? I like the NextR cranks just obviously donít want to be changing bottom bracket bearings every week.

    I have 25 rides on mine and bb is fine. Iím not heavy though.

    Swapping to a shimano crank and one of the Problem Solvers screw-together reducer BBs is the route I will go if the BB starts becoming an issue.

    You should contact YT first off. It could have been a fluke bad bearing or poor install.
    The server is too busy at the moment. Please try again later.

    I did contact YT but not until the trashed bearing had already been removed and junked. Iím sure I could have gotten a replacement from them if Iíd done it the right way.

    No worries, upgraded to an Enduro replacement BB which is a direct replacement and is supposed to be a lot more durable.
