Yeah. I don't think that BSA is a cure-all for creaking, but they're easier to remove than the pressfit stuff. On T47, I just don't really see a huge advantage to it over BSA.

It's just anecdotal evidence of course, but in several decades of cycling I never experienced any creaking whatsoever - until I got blessed with pressfit bottom brackets. Then,100% of the bikes with pressfit have had problems. Sometimes minor as in a recent past bike, and sometimes major as in my current ride. I can't wait to get back to a threaded bottom bracket!
T47, from what I've read, is more compatible with large spindle cranksets than BSA. I'll take either.

Will the new crux be part ugly a la sl7? Sl6 is prettier
😁
I've ridden 8000k with bb30. All good on my 201is this the new crux? SPE-CRU3-CX Google it. Approved UCI frame November 2021... And a 3 instead of 2...

If there is a number 3 crux on the UCI approved frame-sheet, wouldn't you think it's a new crux?;)

Yeah, and unlikely to break cover until just before the next CX season I'd guess

I need a 54 - the new version with threaded bottom bracket, though.

Hopefully clearance is a small amount more, perhaps up to 45mm.

Then I will happily switch to Crux from a Diverge. I do not like the FutureShock. It works okay but is heavy and there are maintenance, spare parts questions for the future.

That's why it is called future shock

Future Shock will be when the shock breaks in two years time. You have to be lucky not to be the one that trigger the next Specialized product recall.
