I'm on my second WheelsMFG angular contact BB on my gravel bike this year and its already starting to feel a bit rough after changing it in September. They have been fine on road bikes but one muddy cross race combined with regular trail grit seems to eat through them. I know the Raceface ones are even worse, I'd be willing to spend on a nice one if I know I won't have to change it. Drag is secondary for these I don't really care if its super free spinning new if its going to be rough after two months of riding in the woods.

I like the Hawk Racing products. I have a PF30 stainless BB still going strong over 2 years now. Still completly smooth. I went with the full stainless bearings. Also aavalable with a CX seal for wet/dusty conditions. Well worth the money I think.

The Wheels MFG is one of the best. I tried the Rotor BSA30 but seals aren't great like the bearing.. Now with the Wheels MFG Angular contact, seals are way better. BB Infinite have the lightest one with Abec 7 bearing.

We have now a feedback on the use of CyclingCeramic BSA30 VS Rotor Ceramic BSA30 (using Enduro Bearings).
Our customers and our bike are showing a better life duration, let's say 1 year-18 months with CyclingCeramic BSA30. https://www.velo-perso.com/en/crank-bea ... black.html

Price is similar, so, it's a good deal.
