Have anyone swapped out their steel BB bearings [BB30 if poss] for ceramic versions.

The price difference is 93% more expensive so are they 93% better?
:wink:

    yep sure did....cant really tell the difference on the bike...chainset turns ubber smooth though :D
  • Yes me. Trust me it's worth the upgrade. Get an F1 ceramic BB. There listed on ebay right now. for $89. They used grade 3 ceramic bearings. Don't forget to upgrade your pulleys and wheelset bearings to ceramic also. They roll and spin longer than grade 25 steel bearings.
