PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
"he point is moot, however, because over time, natural selection has eliminated all the brands that made noisy thread-in bottom brackets." - Laughed at this. As a mechanic I can tell you that the one think I hate working on the most are PF-BB's, and the writer's use of the past tense here to describe the "natural selection" of BB is just wrong. This past week I had to fix this issue on three different bikes. All of which are 2015 models or newer. What I find the most irritating is most fixes are all temporary. Even Specialized's recommendation of epoxy (yes, they do recommend you use epoxy to help keep there BB's from fixing) works for only about a year. To answer the question-- if BB's were silent I probably would still go threaded, simply because the noise is only a symptom of a larger problem. If the BB shell(Frame, or plastic cups) is made out of anything softer than aluminum the aluminum ring of the bearing will eventually gouge into it. Which will eventually lead all other bearings installed later having a poor fit.

Aesthetically speaking, not quite sure if this photo really does it for me. However, technically speaking- wonderful shot. Emotionally speaking my reaction to this shot feels almost like a Pollock painting. The 'artistic' quality isn't necessarily in the finished photo, but rather in the artists technique to create it. Kudos on the POD.

Woohooo StarCraft Reference on Pinkbike. Is God making room for the Zerg, the Protoss, or the Xel'naga? Or maybe the Covenant... or maybe by "Flood" he meant thousands of zombie cockroaches. So much potential for speculation here. I sense a TeamRumours coming soon... "Earth drops its contract with humans due to last millenium's media fiasco... which species will in sponsor in the next epoch's UCI Evolution Series"
