    ultra torque b.b. tightness

    Anyone have issues with the 07 ultra-torque cranks? I was expecting a "spin forever" like the square-taper, but not so! The bearings are super smooth, but do not spin much. FWIW, my b.b. shell is within campy's specs--perhaps I should touch up the facing?

    thanks for the help!

    Roddw,
    I just saw this on Velonews:

    You need to scroll down about a 1/3 of the way down and you will see that someone asks the same question you are asking regarding the increase in friction. It's titled "great question but wait for the answer."

    I am guessing we will all see if these externally-bearing bb's are worth all the hype.
