I feel they just optimised it for road, instead of being downhill, high impact tough (which is what they were, as the old layout was shared with saint, dx Bmx, etc.)

If this new modified BB is so much better and so likely to revolutionize your riding with lighter weight and less drag ... why didn't Shimano Mega Corp with all its bike experts think of it first time around? The new BB is just different. They have made a part that is less durable on account of smaller bearings. That is 'swings and roundabouts' as we say in the UK.


You're sure good at whining.
Why didn't Benz make a better car over 100 years ago?! Ever heard about evolution?
