Does anyone else go through press fit bottom brackets really fast? I’m talking 6-9 months before the they need to be repacked or replaced?
I have a weird theory that because I’m a heavy sweater, and the shape of most bottom bracket areas with flush press fit BBs channels the sweat almost directly into the area where the bottom bracket bearings sit.
When I have threaded bottom brackets, because the cups are a little bit outside of the BB and there are threads, the sweat instead runs along the side of the cups.
I ride my MTB in all sorts of terrible conditions, rarely wash it, and the cranks spin super freely, whereas it feels like my road bike bearings go bad super quickly.
