I’ve managed to shred another one. Within 2 and a half years this will be my third BB I’ve gone through. I’m kinda looking for a little advice on what I can do so I don’t have to put in a new BB every damn year. I, myself, am a big guy. This is what I attributed it to at first, but I’ve been told that has got nothing to do with it.  What I was told was that leg power and mashing up hill in top gears is what will do them in.  I have got some strong legs, thanks to the hills of B-more, and I kind of enjoy mashing up hills.

So, I guess what I’m asking is if one: Does my weight have something to do with it?

Two: If weight has nothing to do with it, then is there a BB out there that will allow me not to have to change my riding style?

Any advice is welcome. Thanks all. :)
