    Re: Should you be able to ride a bike in the rain?

    When I installed the brand matching FSA BB to the FSA crank, the FSA had a better, smoother, more watertight fit/seal where the two cups came together inside the BB cavity. The SRAM BB does not have as good a seal when the two cups meet in the middle. And being my BB dimension is 79mm, both BBs had less of an overlap. I just think the FSA will do a better job of keeping water/crud out of the bearings area. I also put a layer of Loctite 641 (as per BBright specs) in where the 2 cups overlap to decrease the chances water getting in.
