"To be fair the chainset I was using with this BB was an old badged Truvativ GXP fit but it never really fitted correctly with this new style of GXP.
They've never been terribly durable and in the end I switched from Sram to Shimano.
Just my experience and I couldn't say if they had the same issues with an Apex or whatever chainset.

Cons: Wears Out Easily, Poor Fit

 Schwalbe Lugano Folding Road Tyre
Schwalbe Lugano Folding Road Tyre
The Schwalbe Lugano folding tyre offers good grip in both wet and dry conditions thanks to it's diamond profile. The tyre also features their K-Guard protection belt, which contains natural rubber and reinforced with Kevlar. Great all-round tyre.

"After years of riding with Bontrager tyres I decided to try something different and opted for 25c Luganos.
I don't think the difference between 25c and 23c is noticeable and the Lugano's even in folding form give a 'harsher' ride than what I've been used to. That said it isn't unpleasant and the grip seems good in damp conditions.

"A rather expensive way of freeing up handlebar space but definitely provides a better way of seeing your Garmin Edge info whilst riding and really does look quite pro.
This is one of those things you buy because you want it and the cost be damned.

Pros: Attractive, Good Fit
Cons: Expensive

"Despite being of slim build I have had problems with the back of my thighs touching saddle packs that attach to the seat pin for years. Saw this Sci-Con product mounted considerably further away from the pin so decided to give it a go. Thigh problem solved and it looks very neat indeed.
Stopping it getting full points is the sloppy fit between pack and interface which rattled like a kids toy on first use. Solved by packing it out with Blu Tack but really shouldn't have to do that.
The integrated tyre levers is a very neat idea.

"With bike theft increasing the idea of leaving my beloved Madone out of sight at cafes during bike rides was ever more unacceptable. Equally lugging a huge lock round was not going to happen. Enter this Abus lock. Small enough to fit in a jersey pocket it is never going to step the determined bike thief but will prevent the opportunist from walking away with your pride and joy. Simple to set up and easy to use it ticks the boxes I bought it for and so far has been reliable in use.
Could be seen as slightly expensive by some but if you're happy to leave a few grands worth of bike untethered and out of sight for the sake of £20 the best of British to you.
"
Pros: Adjustable, Lightweight

SRAM Red Crankset compatible

Will SRAM Red 50/34 GXP 10 crankset fit to this GXP bottom bearing cup set.
Should be, don't believe Red has a specific GXP design.

Would this work with Mio 305

Hi Guys,

Was just wondering if this would work with the Mio Cyclo 305 as keen to order a bike mount for this product.

Thanks
Unlikely as it's exclusive to Garmin Edge devices with a twist fit.
