    BB30 vs. BSA?

    Building my first bike. Current frame choice pending vendor-specified maximum rider weight rating is THIS Chinese rigid carbon 650b with fork, size 21".

    No major parts in hand yet. Hoping this frame accepts suspended fork in case I decide to switch.

    BB30 looks more durable at THIS Wiki article. Please explain BSA advantage if such exists. Why does vendor offer both?

    What special bike-specific assembly tools are required? Sources? I will almost certainly purchase complete wheelsets.

    I do believe your chinese builder means english threading as used on frames for years and years now. It works, why change? JSYN, I'm not a fan of pressfit bbs which is what BB30 is.

    Tools? To put a bike together? Lots....

    for BB 30 some type of press set up.

    for english threading it depends on what brand and type of BB you install

    The frame will take a susp. fork. AC of the rigid fork is 472. You'll want something very close.
