OK I know the manufacturers tell us they make a frame stiffer (probably true - larger diameter BB = stiffer frame in that area) but having had a press fit BB they are truly cr@p. They last for a few wet rides and to me at least are not fit for purpose on an MTB.
So, are there any 'advantages' I'm missing out on (apart from more time being 'at one' with your bike changing the BB)? Seems a pure marketing fad that's pointless in the real world and I'm damned if I can tell if my non-PF BB bike is flexier than my last PF BB bike..
And are all the 'mainstream' manufacturers going press fit? Looking for a new FS at the end of the year and don't want another press fit BB. I've looked at Specialized, Giant, Lapierre etc and seem only to be able to find frame-only options eg Santa Cruz or Yeti that have not gone press fit mad, but a custom build is too expensive. Any ideas?
