    Personally I wouldn’t bother with Press Fit as I’m happy enough with the Ext Threaded stuff. Considering how much is still threaded they will be making them for years. As hope seem to be lasting for 3 years + on MTB then I reckon it’s a safe bet on a road bike.

    I haven’t bought a frame less than 5 years old for quite some tine, and so am a little out of touch on what’s deemed to be the best option these days. I’m planning to get the LTK115D disc-road frame which is available with BSA, BB30 or PF30 shell. If I could reuse my hollowtech cranks that’d be good, and I think you can get a BB30 to BSA adapter. Can anyone suggest which might be best long term? I’m still nervous about a press fit system as it means I won’t be able to service it myself. Hope will be making Hollowtech BBs for years to come, right?

    I went for BSA for ease of fitting & longevity after the rubbish that is the presfit BB on OH’s bike
