While it didn't help me go up hills faster than before, it certainly helped to quiet down my bike. I'm not sure what I did to my other bottom bracket, but it started making quite a lot of noise. I picked this up instead of buying the tool + new bearings for my current BB, and I couldn't be happier. Install was a cinch, it came with an awesome sticker for my toolbox, and more importantly, it quieted down my bike's drivetrain immensely. All I hear now is the annoying chain slap my old 3x9 XT system produces over all the bumps/roots/rocks.
