There are bearings, but they're encased in magical plastic stuff. I was thinking someone came up with a bushing BB.

They're not unheard of on crap kids toys.

Plain bearings are also used in expensive pedals. I guess a plain bearing beats a rotten rumbly ball bearing in that instance.

I have not noticed that quality and price are well correlated in the
pedal market.

That's true. However, it seems that cheap (sub-$30 retail) pedals use loose ball, notionally adjustable bearings, and only the more expensive pedals use plain bearings and/or cartridge bearings. There are of course both decent and awful pedals on both sides of that divide.

The noteworthy exception I've seen to the cheap pedals-cup & cone bearings correlation is horribly cheap Walmart/Bell pedals that use cast plastic bodies turning on smooth steel spindles with no discrete bearings at all.

Apparently, Cane Creek wasn't selling BBs. They had a super-duper crank for which they designed a super-duper BB. Apparently people who owned the crank were just using water-fearing BBs manufactured by third-parties.

Chalo, What do you call those crank standards that fit the press-in bearings BBs? They are narrower than the 386.

There are too many Johnny-come-lately nonstandard BB standards to keep track of them all. When I run across one I can't identify (rarely, because my shop is mostly commuters and thrifty upcyclers), I consult a table like Park Tool's.

My last mystery solved was a State brand disc brake CX bike with an eccentric BB. When I pulled the thing out, I thought, "this doesn't look quite big enough to be a tandem eccentric shell" and also "f**k me-- a new superfluous GD BB standard".

Turns out it was a regular BMX/OPC type shell with a couple of big set screws welded on. That customer got a tubular CrMo crank which was cheaper and cooler than what had been in the original plan.
