At Sea Otter, they told us the new Chris King PressFit bottom brackets would start shipping in a couple weeks, and seems they’re true to their word. The CK PFBB30 and PressFit 24 bottom brackets are now ready to head out the door.
They’ve been race tested under the United Healthcare Pro Cycling team. Seven different conversion kits are available, providing a range of adapters to fit just about any crank size and type, including SRAM’s tapered GXP spindles and for varying BB shell widths. The bottom brackets are fully serviceable and come with either stainless steel or ceramic bearings, and all of it’s 100% made in the USA. Nine anodized colors available.

In other news, their Cielo bikes are now available for ordering and stocking by authorized Chris King dealers. While we don’t imagine too many shops will carry their staggeringly broad size run in too many (if any) models, having a few on hand to show customers and for demo rides always helps. Shops should talk to their CK sales rep for more details. Word is they’re ramping up production to bring lead times down to eight weeks max.
