    cartridge bottom bracket life?

    I had to remove my cranks and since the bike has >15K miles I figured I should replace the BB. Now this is just a cheap Veloce triple BB but after all those miles it was still super smooth and no play. Did I replace it too soon?

    At 15k mi I would clean & regrease. If still smooth & no play- I would reinstall. Now if you were about to go on an unsupported cross-country......
