I have done zero maintenance for 20K km /4…5years. Even more there is no way to maintain this hub. Just google for SKF BB! I use my bicycle mainly to commute in the Netherlands 60km/day. Weather is similar to UK – sometimes rain, rarely snow, but a lot of salt. It is relatively mild condition compare to world cyclist. Zero maintance, 100km. E.g no one do maintaince cycling in Middle East, India or mainland China. I don’t know what do you mean with MTB usage. My picture for MTB is – Sunday morning fat rider sitting on high end 4000+$ carbon frame MTB immediately cleaned after the race, maintained at least once per year at LBS.
There are plenty of power measurements data. Just google for it.
3W is not fo BB only – It is pedals+BB+Wheel bearings.
Ceramics bearing. Yeah …… read power test data German cycling magazines are good source for it.
Ask yourself If you don’t believe on them, Why Shimano or Sram don’t make ceramics bearing? Are they stupid?

Up until now I have hear only positive reaction about Phil Wood Grease. I have two questions:
1. I wonder what for type grease is? /I suppose AL complex/
2. What brand they use? - they don't have their own facility to produce grease, nor the entrance to advanced additive packages,nor the base oils. I suppose that they re-brand some marine grease - e.g. Sta-Lube which it sells for 4..5$/cartridge at Amazon.

Personally I have never trust on bicycle grease. I use Industrial or marine grease from trusted suplier with clear specification and test results.

I use Mobil Delvac Xtreme or Valvoline Cerulean for bike grease. I can't find Chevron Delo grease anywhere. And Molykote 33 on my cables.

I'm sure its just water proof marine grease.. I wonder were Phill gets his grease from also ?
