It's time for my shimano crankset to go(old model with Square bb type)
Wanna get something that will last me for at least another 3 years.
Below are some option I have in mind or should I wait for more 05 model with integrated BB?

1. Raceface Next (ISIS)
2. Raceface turbine (ISIS)
3. Stylo Team(ISIS)
4. 04 XT ( integrated)
5. Raceface Deus (X-type)

According to kona 05 bikes, I understand that the lower model such as the evole will have integrated BB as well. So I should asume that 05 will have lot of model with integrated BB coming.

Please advise..
Thanks in advance...

I'm not a big fan of ISIS and from the experiences of what seem like most people out there they are not very relaible. And from what it sound like ISIS might not be around for too long.
Also not a Raceface fan as their rings are heavy and dont shift very well.
