    They don't feel worn out, I will have a spare time this weekend to re-grease them and see what is going on. They just that noise when stronger revolutions are pressed, per example going up-hill, and yes seems to be on the NDS, but hard to tell 100%.

    Is Park Tool PPL-I any good for re-grease after good flush?

    Thanks for clarifying on re-Hope BB. I just mentioned such HOPE BB because someone recommended me and I wanted to check thoughts on it. Thanks for the input.

    Would it be cheaper to destroy and replace the standard one? It’s what
    most on here do.

    That sounds the most affordable/viable solution to me VS trying to get out of the GXP system an indestructible system, as someone said: is a lost battle from the beginning. Cheers

    I really appreciate your knowledge and in my all humbleness, I came here to exactly seek for help. Thanks for that. I do not know how I caused you any stroke. If was due my shitty English, I am sorry but I am not Native and I didn't wanted to hurt your heart. If was due to anything I said, sorry but when you look up online, is a quite common issue with this setup, I didn't say anything wrong, is a common issue with a common setup. Coicidence? I don't think is a feature :)

    Sorry if I didn't collect accurate statistics carefully before I created the topic asking for some help :)

    Can't quantify, but funny is I know at least 2 other guys in person that have the same issue with them.
    After mine started with the noises, I obvs started to look online before I do anything. And Noticed that is a fairly frequent issue, almost ritualistic for some people that have to change bearings/cups every year or so dependingly on how much they ride.

    All I am doing is trying to get some advice/information on this before I drop to a bike shop that atm is way too busy for any "small" things like this.

    Thanks a lot Chak! Definitely looks a more solid solution and hopefully without the GXP issues that are known for.
