Right, we all know that the basic GXP bottom brackets are crap.

The ceramic ones are about £150, which strikes me as pretty hefty - they'd need to last 8 times as long as the standard one to make it worthwhile.

Any suggestions as to an alternative? Unfortunately, to complicate even further, it needs to be Italian thread?

Or do I just use the GXP's as a £20 fit and chuck away every 6 months item?
