i have a crankset choice to make soon and need to know the difference between a standard bottom bracket and one with outboard bearings. my assumptions are that stiffness will be increased with outboard bearings, but i would also think this would negatively effect the Q factor.

right now i'm looking at the FSA line with the ISIS megaquad topping my list of standard BB's

weight is not a primary concern here. i'm looking more for performance, durability and reliability.

thanks

oversized bb's

the oversized BB's on cannondale, pinarello, and now specialized are a great idea. one of my cannondale's has this BB with the hollowgram crankset and it's great...but i wish there was an industry standard for the OS BB's.

my current BB search is for a specialized roubaix for my wife's first road bike.
thanks for the feedback thus-far.
