    GXP or Press-Fit GXP on a Salsa Moto Rapido

    I am planning on putting a Sram XX 175 28/42 Q166 Crankset on a Salsa Moto Rapido.

    This is where I'm looking at buying and they have the option for GXP or Press-Fit GXP. I don't know too much about BB.. and wikipedia wasn't too helpful with my case. Any advice?

    Oh, and q-factor clears the chainstays, already checked.

    Thanks!

    that frame has a standard English bottom bracket, so you need the regular GXP threaded BB's. the press-fit BB is for a more modern non-threaded BB frame.
