Peacock Groove Project: Bottom Bracket

I've decided to go with a press fit bb30 bottom bracket shell from Paragon Machine Works for my BB.
It's a bit riskier (in that I hope to own this bike for 20+ years) but it seems like BB30 is well on it's way to becoming a standard that's going to last for a while. It's an open standard, is backwards compatible, and the press fit 30 is just about the simplest way to manufacture a bottom bracket.

I hear that my stays and downtube have arrived over at PG, can't wait to go over and see them. I'm hoping Erik will finish up the drawing this week so I can have my Benotto back. I haven't ridden it since last fall, and I miss it.
