Few months ago I've seen new Chris King Bottom Brackets being mentioned on bikerumour and few other sites.
Does anyone know where I can get them from ? (looking for PF30 to 24mm adapter)
here's the response:
Thanks for your email. The new Press Fit BB30 Bottom Brackets won’t be available from Chris King until April 1. The price for this bottom bracket with stainless steel bearings will be $165.00 and with ceramic bearings for $235.00. Please check back with us in April for updated stock status.
Just let me know if I can assist any time.
If you don't want to wait another option which seems to be getting pretty good feedback is the praxis converter BB.
Anyway be interested to hear how it goes as I'm mucking around with PF30 to BSA adapter and using a GXP BB which was used a cheap option but has started creeping out and require regular maintenance to push it back in every couple of weeks.
I'll probably get a new groupset with a proper BB30 crank...
Much appreciate you finding it out.
I am definitely going to wait for the new CK BB. As with any CK products, it's "set it and forget it", especially given the numerous "creaking" issues people are having with PF30 to 24mm adapters.
I only wish Shimano finally got on a band wagon and made a PF30 or BB30 compatible crank, however this isn't going to happen, so adapter is my only option.
While there are number of PF30 cranks on the market, the shimano has the best longevity and shifting quality. (unless there is something else you could recommend?)
If you do get stock notification, please let me know.
I am preparing to build my new ride when my Moots RSL frame finally comes in. (while I am waiting, I am hoping to get all the build kit ready)

Have a look at our Conversion BB. It's exactly why we made it and designed it with our Praxis Collet System...
"Set it up and forget it" If any questions just give us an email.
Here is our product page on it. http://praxiscycles.com/pages/conversion

Decided Dura race is out because I'm not getting new wheels as well...
So that leaves either 1. Wait for a GXP version of the Praxis and stick with force or Sram Red with BB30 or Campag Record with the Praxis BB
