my 2009 roubaix has had bottom bracket noises on/off for past 2 years- always when pedalling under load

replaced BB a few times, usually sorts it. Latest BB (hope ) 6 months old started ticking. replced it, all was well- now after 5 miles started doing it again.

Now I understand spesh have had issues with the shell moving in the frame. I am 16 stone plus and wonmder whether this is the issue- also there is paint flaking off which may indicate BB movement


Anyone else had this problem?[/img]

    Paint some Tippex along the join of the BB shell/insert and see if it cracks in use showing it's moving.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
