My Saint bottom bracket on the Intense does have a little hitch in it so I may be able to justify it in a couple of months.  Anyone have a high pressure hose I can borrow?

              Bliss!

     
     Every revolution of the crank. Chris King quality is noticeable and that butter smooth feeling resonates through the feet, into and through the legs and the MTB experience is uplifted several levels.  It felt like spinning on a road bike out there on the trails. So smooth! Two rides with the new bottom bracket, both at Boyette, just under 50 miles  so I've given it a pretty good test. Nice!!  This product will soon be Doctor recommended for reduced wear on the legs and knees.   ;D

Thinking of ways to link this thread to the shaving thread?

No grease thingy yet. Will have to look into that.  I couldn't find anything on line about it and forgot to ask at the shop.

From the King site:

Racers take note! With the Chris King bottom bracket and injection tool, you can train day-to-day with a durable high-viscosity grease and race with a light, fast-rolling low-viscosity grease or oil. Imagine your current Friday night leg-shaving ritual finishing with a few minutes in the garage to get your bike as smooth as you are. Available in 10 colors.

So ghey  ;D
