Upgrade my CAAD7 -- cross post from Roadie forum

I thought perhaps mechanics may know the answer to my question.

After 12 years and many thousands of miles on my Cdale CAAD7, I am in market for a new frame. Id prefer frame with bsa bb shell. Is anyone still making higher end alu or carbon frames with english shells or is press fit now the only option?

Hard to find. I know because I'm with you, I love the ease of a threaded shell. What size frame do you need?

Depends on tne frame. My cdale is 58cm ST c-c with 57.5 top tube. Basically any frame witn ETT of 57 or 57.5 works for me.

Dang if you had needed a 55-56cm tt I have a Six13 that has a threaded BB that I've been thinking about selling.

I'm think there are a few early CAAD9s that had a threaded BB but don't quote me on that.
