    BB30 vs PressFit30

    Looks like Niner is going to offer options for BB30 and PressFit30 for the Carbon Air 9. Are there advantages to one over the other??

    Isn't BB30 lighter? It's just bearings pressed in the frame while the PressFit30 is bearings pressed in cups that are pressed in the frame... seems like one more useless part but honestly. I haven't checked PressFit30 too much, I don't see what's the point to go that way when BB30 is available.

    Press fit BB30 keeps you from destroying your frame when that fragile BB30 bearing (for our wet PNW environment) fails and locks up...
    It's also less likely to make noise in the frame and is more like a burly BMX style BB.
