After cleaning my bike after my ride this morning; yes "working from home" rules :) I noticed a slight grinding coming from the BB, now I assume this means it's on it's way out so I'm looking at a new one. Bit anoyed it's only lasted about 700/800 miles but I did do alot of that through the winter so I suppose it's the way it goes.

Been looking at the Hope ones as they appear to be servicable. Are they worth the extra cash over the XT External BB I have right now?

    you can get the XT bearings replaced if you know someone with the kit to do it.

    and buying advice questions have there own section and that is not Tech.

    I don't get that statement. Quite clearly I am asking if the Hope BB is worth buying over another XT one. That to my mind is a buying advice question which is why I posted in buying advice and not a tech question which I would have posted in workshop.
