PINKBIKE POLL: Press-Fit Bottom brackets
It's cheaper to manufacture so they try to brainwash us into thinking its stiffer, quieter, and easier to maintain which is all a lie. Out of all bicycle debates, this is the one subject that really gets me going "0 to 100 nigga real quick!" Presented with the opportunity, I'd sock the person who wrote this article so hard in the face he'd forget what side the drive side bearings go. This is why... Press fit bbs remove a few steps of manufacturing which in turn lowers costs. It "may" be stiffer than standard bbs but I've never had any issues with flex from a properly installed standard bb. And the creeks, oh those creaks! Putting all these smaller issues aside, there is one thing that no one can refute, not even the skinny wiener who wrote this incredibly biased article. Carbon sleeves wear out. I've seen this happen every week for the past 5 years working at a trek store. After a solid year of racing, we would have team members come in only to find their bb bearings floating, that's right, floating in what used to be a snug casing on their road bikes. Solution to fix the problem? Trek started sending out bearings with a millimeter wider outter diameter. This problem can only be fixed only so many times before the frame is toast and needs to be thrown away...just like a disposable camera. I know most of us reading this ride mountain bikes but know this, trek uses the same bb shell for their carbon mountain frames as well (excluding the session.) Press fit is a pile of shit and hope everyone knows not to eat it up like the author of this article has. Santa Cruz, Niner, and Ibis have their bb shell knowledge down. That's why they use standard bbs. Go ahead and get a press fit frame if you want, just don't cry and bitch out your local bike shop when it fails and you have to throw away your entire frame.
