Wheels Manufacturing PressFit Threaded Bottom Bracket

$74–$175, Wheelsmfg.com
The draw: Wide range of compatibility

While heralded as lighter and stiffer than frames with traditional threaded bottom bracket designs, the modern standard press-fit frame design can be prone to creaking. Praxis Works was the first to develop a solution where the two press-fit cups are threaded together to enhance the alignment and integrity of the cup-to-frame interface. Wheels Manufacturing has followed suit with its own creak-free design that covers even more crank and frame options.
