Well maybe shredded is not the best word, but the drive side bearing is failing. Although I went pretty high end on the build, the XT hollowtech crankset was something I bought after my old XTR’s would not work on the new build. EP let me buy his off of him so I could ride her the day we figured it all out, thanks. They are still really good and for more $ the XTR’s just do not offer enough better to justify the price.
So after 737 miles the bearing began breaking down on the drive side. EP said he had replaced his after a month. General upgrade to Phil Wood bearings is a logical and really cool upgrade.
I am actually pretty proud of myself. Nate down at monkey wrench cycles lubed up the current bearings to get me through the week until the new ones show up. It is gonna be a hot and sticky TNMWR tonight. Looks like we are going to hit the park.
