Yes, a cartridge BB is a good choice. Mine is at least 60.000 km in service - no play so far. And I took it from a scrap bike, which means that it was already old when I installed it!

I always thought, that rod end bearings are quite sturdy. Why did they wear out so fast?

Hi all

After suffering rod end bearings for the last 4 years I want to move to a BB pivot.

However I am unsure how you make it adjustable so you can ensure the tapers are well bolted up to stop the BB rattling between the pivot anchors [ being either pedal cranks[ original  design ] or a built up *[* shape ? ]]
