Litespeed now offers the T47 standard bottom bracket on all frames as an upgrade! So, what are the benefits of the T47 bottom bracket?

 

WHAT IS THE T47 BOTTOM BRACKET?

  • T47 bottom bracket uses the frame dimensions of PressFit 30: a 68mm wide bottom bracket shell for road bikes and 73mm wide for mountain bikes. The inner diameter of the shell is 46mm. The major change is that the shell is actually threaded.
  • T47 combines the benefits of a large bottom bracket shell, a larger area for the down tube and seat stays to be welded onto, with the threads that many riders prefer over a pressed system. From a frame builders perspective, this makes a lot of sense.
  • T47 is a newer bottom bracket shell design, utilizing the oversized interface of PF30 and EVO386, but with the benefit and peace of mind of a threaded interface.
