Website says available "Holiday 2009". That's now and I want one!
GXP used to have the same size bearings as HT2 with a press in sleeve (similar to what's shown in the CK picture) but they soon switched to a proprietary bearing that doesn't use the sleeve. I was looking at a set of Hope adapters that allow an HT2 bb to work with GXP stuff, but the CK route looks very similar in their approach.
got a pink one, told me it was a roadie version?
swanky, not sure what bike to put it on yet.
shame to hide it behind chainrings but my SS runs burly saint cranks so the arms would hide it anyways.
need skimpier cranks it seems.
