    behind you, don't wait up.
    Anyone make some type of adapter to use a threaded BB in stead of a press fit BB?
    Praxis Works makes one for 24mm Shimano spindles but I don't see one for a 30mm.

    (I'm afraid of press fit bottom brackets)

    Gracias, muchachos.

    yes! just like those. Thanks Jon!

    edit: actually, not exactly like those. What I was picturing was a sleeve that I could thread standard BB cups into, but these are close enough.

    because of the size of the bearings for a 30mm spindle, i don't think you're gonna find an adapter that'll let you thread in a "normal" english type (threaded) BB in a PF30 frame. the above options put it all in one unit, which is probably a better solution anyways.

    If you get the WMfg BB, make sure to get their tools as well. Not compatible with RF BSA 30 tools. :(
