It would stop me buying a bike. "speak with your feet / wallet", I'm sure there's a saying in there somewhere.....

So, did you all notice that the new Kona Process G2 has a press fit BB - will you be raving about it so much now? #devilisinthedetail

Creaks can destroy a person or their relationship with a bike. Not bottom bracket related but I know someone that once filled their Commencal frame with expandifoam in an effort to prevent cable rattle, shame they forgot to thread the rear brake hose through an outer hose first...... that stuff sticks.

You cannot get them in colours and they put you off riding your bike and maybe even stop your friends from giving you a call to ride with them. Creak CREAK creak CREAK
