1. Do Felt frames have English or Italian threaded bottom brackets?
2. Is it possible that an unhoned BB shell on the frame could have killed my ceramic bearings? My beloved Felt F55 cracked the right chainstay; Felt replaced my 4-year-old frame without fuss, but my LBS is decidedly not a competent technician; (both derailleurs maladjusted, loose headset, left crankarm not installed properly, brakes not centered...) so I suspect the shell was not properly honed before my DA-ceramic bottom bracket (the outer edges of which were also badly marred by a ham-fisted installation) was installed on the new frame.
I've got a worsening creak in my spider/bb area. It started out creaking only when I stood, but now creaks even when sitting. I've replaced the chainrings and CR bolts, but the creak continues. Still spins like a demon (much, much more freely than the OEM DA BB), but 70 miles of squeek-squeek-squeek made for an unpleasant Saturday ride.
Many thanks in advance!
