Quick, you should get an urgent message to Tom Boonen, because that poor slob has been having to make do with Campy square taper BB's on his bikes....and alloy cranks. The poor guy could actuallly win races.......what.....oh, he has been winning? Well, surely he must be whining about those darned flexy square taper BB's, right? What, he hasn't? Hmmmm. Imagine that.Capt.Q said:I have a Campy Record C10 grupo. I tried the Campy Carbon drive train on one of my new frames without any problem except the old square bottom backet.It rode all fine, but switching to a FSA SLK mega exo with external bearings was the smartest thing I could have ever done. Not a bit of flex. I was pleasantly surprised.Like a rock!
You are SUCH a wet blanket!fmw said:Sorry, I don't have a link but I did read the results of a scientific test once. As it turns out, the "stiffest" cranks and BB's were Shimano Ultegra square drive. However the difference between the "stiffest" and the "least stiff" was inconsequential - barely measurable, in fact. If a rider feels flex around the bottom bracket, that is the frame, not the bottom bracket or cranks. It is not possible to feel differences in flex from one BB or crank to another. It is possible, of course, to feel flex from a frame.
