    How are those press fit BB's holding out? Any other problems with the 2019 Jeffsy?

    As you all know it's hard to ignor the 2019 Jeffsy Pro Race build and there are some year end deals in my size. It's more bike than I need but the value looks worth the step up.

    The press fit BB in general is a mild concern. Is the Jeffsy implementation holding up after a season? Any other concerns with the frame and build?

    I ride trails with tight turns and the wheels mostly stay on the ground, for now anyway. Lots of roots and rocks, more small bump then big hit.

    Thanks!!

    No creaking or tapping on my 2019 Jeffsy CF Pro. Iím 11 months and 2300km in. Iíve pulled everything apart and the bb bearings are still running smooth. All in all itís been suprisingly quiet. Satisfied!

    Interestingly, I picked up my Pike fork and Deluxe shock from a seal service and the guy told me that the seals were unusually dry for a 1 year service. No permanent damage to the stanchions but odd nonetheless.

    After 2 years I finally had to replace mine. Before then, no creaking or issues at all. Was pretty impressed.

    Almost a year on my Pro Race and the bottom bracket is still quiet and smooth. I did have a lot of creaking early on, but found that this was due to most of the pivots bring dry -- greased them all and no issues since. A rep at YT mentioned that they had some issues with the builders being stingy with the grease, this was def the case with mine. Still loving it!
