    My current bb is completely toasted. The spindle is moving around all over the place and everything...

    So, I need a new bb. I have the echo ffw cranks and they are square taper. I don't want to blow alot of money on a nice square bb, because i will probobly be getting new isis cranks in the future anyways...

    So, what do you think about somthing like a shimano un-52/53 bottom bracket?? they are like $16

    I've used crap 75$ shimano cranks and a 20$ shimano bb for over a year now...Although I never do bash moves unless I fuck up and fall. But it's still running smoothly...So You may be able to stick it out for a while unless you beat the piss out of your cranks??

    I ran UN-72's back in the day (XT quality I think). I believe that's become the UN73 now... it went pretty well
