    FNG Newbie to Pivot - best cranks / pressed fit BB

    Hey Pivot folks - I'm officially now a Pivot 429 owner, and starting my build. My frame is coming with an XTR pressed-fit bottom bracket. I have a brand-new 2011 Race Face Deus crankset, which is supposed to be compatible with Shimano bottom brackets.....Does anyone see an issue running a Deus crankset with the XTR pressed fit BB? I've never had a pressed fit BB before, so this is a new world for me. The Deus cranks mounted up beautifully with a Chris King bottom bracket on another frame, so I'm hoping they'll do the same with the XTR BB!

    Thanks for your help!!!!!!!!

    Yes, it will work. I ran a RF Next crank for over a year on my 429 and never had a problem with the XTR bottom bracket.
