As per post...

I like the idea it's not tied to a specific chainset as well as the ceramic BB is a bit cheaper than an SRAM equivalent. Also have been pleased in the past with Hope's 'designed to be easily maintained'...

Weight is roughly the same as the SRAM Red (2g heavier - 105g vs 107g)

Just about to order a replacement BB and was after a 2nd opinion?

    you'll need the GXP adaptors if you are running a SRAM crank. The std Hopes are HT2.

    I've done it and it worked fine, although did like periodic greasing to stop it creaking.

    Make sure you get the road version, not MTB.
