Cautionary replacement of BB after 12,000 km ?
edited August 2019
I have completed over 12,000 km on my 5 year old Canyon Ultimate CF SL .
There are no issues at all with the pressfit bottom bracket (Shimano SM-BB72-41).
But someone suggested I replace it as a precautionary measure.
What do you reckon ?
I wouldn't bother if there's no issues.
if it ain't broke don't poke.
ignore them they are talking rubbish

Recognition at last Matthew, well done!, a justified honour
He's right you know.
With all the tales of squeaking BB from new etc I’d be very happy with a faultless one after 12k km and leave well alone!!!
Thanks for the top tips, will save the joys of replacing a pressfit BB until it's needed
I've done around 35,0000km on my 2014 Ultimate CF SLX, never made a single noise, still buttery smooth!
