I was wondering - when are you planning to publish the full review of the bike?
Good point, it does give plenty of space to weld onto, I just think it looks odd on a skinny steel frame. And yes, the Wheels Mfg bottom bracket is the perfect solution. We've also got the Hope screw together BB in to test as well...
PF30 is a bit strange on steel bikes, but looking at Genesis practice with Volare steel - big BB shell gives a lot of stiffness. There is a solution from Wheels Manufacturing - screw together bracket. I've just bought this bike in Shimano drivetrain and sold that stupid FSA chainset straight away, swaped to Ultegra. Like the paint quality, tyre clearance is MASSIVE, assembling is not the best, stem was too tight on a carbon steerer...
Sad for the press fit BB :/
Can you try panaracer comet 27.5 x 2 , is there enough clearance ?
Mmmmm - we grimaced too.....
Totally agree with 1961BikiE, everything sounds great but the press fit BB. I'd be interesting how it faired against the Pinnicle Arkose 3. Also as a roadie interested in getting an adventure bike any chance of doing a comparison between getting an adventure bike or a 29er hardtail mountain bike?
Was looking good until I read "press fit BB". Why oh why on a steel frame? I can understand the arguments for it in carbon frames, especially mass production, but with all the negative reports I've read I'd be very wary. Puts me off this straight away TBH. Shame really.
