    Oh, one more thing: I ride all winter, thousands of miles a year. I need good sealing! I can't afford Chris King, but I'll pay a bit more for the security of something well-sealed.

    Press Fit Bottom Bracket for Touring?

    I just got a new frame. Woo!

    The bottom bracket is a press fit bottom bracket, and I'm used to english threading. I have Shimano Sora cranks and a 50/34 chainring set on my bike right now.
