Familiarity: I've used it several times
“It's hard to imagine anything but universal accord over the bottom bracket choice”.
Yeah, no kidding. I will not even look at a frame that has a press fit, clusterflop BB that, at best, creaks and pops like a cheap, crapped-out flophouse mattress and, at worst, flys apart like a tissue paper shack in a hurricane. It is astounding that even after so many years, bike companies have insisted on cramming a billion inferior BB “standards” down everyone’s throat. They save a nickel on machining a threaded shell and pass it on as a feature rather than a bug and then blame the inevitable cacophony on imprecise installation and/or operator error. So, kudos to Pinarello for sticking with a classic threaded BB interface. If I decide to add a new carbon-framed bike to my stable, they will be at the top of my list (and maybe the only company on it).
