I am considering to buy a new frame but this frame has BB30. My crank is Campy Ultra torique.
It seems to be possible to fit this with pressfit 30 but I have heard about creaking issues.

Can I fix this with Locite but what when I have to remove this?

Any advice and experiences are welcome

Thanks

sluggo, +1 for Praxis. I've got big problems with Campagnolo OS-Fit cups and PF30 BB (viewtopic.php?f=3&t=126152). Loctite didn't fix em and I've installed Praxis adapter (which I got with help of god guy Mark from WW). Since then I've got zero problems with my BB (no creaking noises, no loosening etc.).

+1 for Praxis,

Just fitted one to my ti PF30 for Dura Ace crank. Nicely made, 2 year warranty, a little heavy at 143g compared to cups though.

I would try the PF30 cups or BB30 cups first. I had a Ridley Noah and ran PF30 cups without a single creak. Bike had about 5,000 miles on it when I sold it. Quiet as a mouse. Installed the cups with carbon paste the first time. Never touched them again.

Is the BSA construction better/stronger than BB30 with a Praxis construction?

What if I need to clean the Praxis construction after a while, is it easy to disassemble?

I am considering to buy a new Litespeed with BB30 or custom Ti bike and can chose for the BSA construction. What would be a better chose for me?

Always choose BSA when given the option.

You should go with an Campagnolo Over Torque crankset.

the benefits of a stiffer BB qith no adaptors to come loose.

i have UT crank of Campy and actually they are still brand new.
Like what rbrtwyn said, Always choose BSA when given the option.

So I go for the BSA option.
