One of the things that I wanted to do was remove and examine the bottom bracket. Since I was not familiar with outboard bearing bottom brackets, I did some research about the BB bottom bracket, and here is what I found out. It looks the same and it takes the same tool to remove or install it.
The non-drive side bearings went out on me after seven races they were even uncharacteristically dry races. Interestingly I know of at least three other riders with similar stories about the non-drive side of the MegaExo bottom bracket. I was able to clean most of the gunk out and repack them; but the only recovered so far. I just acquired a set of Enduro bearings, which have slightly larger balls to replace them with and I hope that will cure my ills. If that part is half as good as their headsets I would be overjoyed.
