I am looking at replacing my bottom bracket and was wondering if there is anything better than the standard GXP/Sram BB??

Any recommendations welcome
Slowly but surely! :)

    Hope do an adaptor that allows you to use a Hollowtech2. Token HT2 ones come with a GXP adaptor too.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • had similar issue a while ago, i replaced mine with set of campag super record ceramic ones. purely for the increased longevity .

    fitting was a utter pain though as you do need specific tools to do the job with campy and even with them it isn't a easy job but more a "experience" compared to the utter simplicity of hollowtech jobs :)

    I've been looking into this as GXP BB's are absolutely terrible and my second one is already creaking. I think a Chris King BB would be the ultimate, not cheap though.
