    Jet 9 Carbon 2015 and Red Face PF30 Bottom Bracket Adaptor combo

    Hey guys

    I've been sourcing the parts for the wife's Jet 9 Carbon 2015 in XS and can't wait to build it.

    http://www.jensonusa.com/images/Defa...5/BB239M00.jpg

    I would appreciate some help and your experiences on installing the Red Face PF30 Bottom Bracket Adaptor on the Jet 9 Carbon or any similar carbon PF30 BB shell.

    I understand that this was once a hot topic. I read a thread on here comparing none-permanent adhesive vs variety of loctite blues vs dry fit. But the thread is quite old and there was no mention of the Red Face adaptor then.

    Your thoughts/experiences to share on this combo?

    Thanks

    Decided against the Red Face Adaptor and went with the SRAM PF30 to BSA Adaptor instead.

    Installation was easy, but not ridden yet.

    Those adapters can work well but they are one time use. If you press it out then plan on recycling it. They also don't last forever, but they are cheap!

    Agreed, cheaper than the alternatives plus, being my first press fit install, I like the idea that it's plastic and contorts to and less likely to damage the BB shell.

    As it's on the wife's bike I don't think it will see much abuse.

    Thanks

    I chose this one and couldn't be happier:

    PF30 Outboard Angular Contact BB for 24/22mm Cranks (SRAM, Truvativ, Etc.) - Black

    No Creaks/Rattles/Squeaks etc. No locate or adhesive needed. And super buttery smooth. Running a SRAM GXP XX1 Crankset.
