    2019 Occam TR - bottom bracket options

    I have a 2019 Occam TR and love it. The only thing I did not like when I bought the bike was the press fit bottom bracket. But that did not stop the purchase.

    About 6 months in, I now have a "click" in my pedaling that I am 90% sure is the bottom bracket.

    As I understand, the Occam has a PF 92 bottom bracket. Is this correct?

    Also, I have seen that Orbea also supports a BB30 press fit, correct?

    From my research, I need both a removal tool and a press in order to replace. Buying these is not a big deal as I can also use them for headsets and I expect to have the bike for a while.

    As for the replacement, has anyone use a White Industries BB?

    They appear to have a great reputation but are also very pricey.

    Just trying to figure out what my options are at this point.

    I have had really good experiences with the Shimano PF 92 BBs. Life span has been exceptional, particularly since my habit of power washing a bike usually leads to short BB life spans.
