The BB 30 and the BB 30 press fit (PF 30) bottom brackets are more than a little different and now I have both. The PF 30 is pissing me off.

Creak....Creak....Creak.... and I can't get the fucking thing apart.

I've heard both grease and green loctite to cure that. since I don't have a PF30.

I DO need to pull my BB30 BB apart and re-grease it. I'm starting to get some noise down there.

Yeah, I can pull my BB 30 apart, drunk, in the dark, clean and grease it and have it back together and torqued in about 20 minutes. This PF 30 is a different animal.

I'm not getting it.

Interesting, but a thousand bucks for a set of brakes? Saints preserve us...

Anybody using their phone for a cycling computer?
I started thinking about this last year, and never bothered to research it. I'm certain it's already out there. I figure I already carry it, and had thought about using the GPS and map for rides that go out a little further than usual, all I'd need is a mount for it. And if I'm going that far, I'm sure it could do double duty and replace the little pos cadence/speedo counter I have on the bike now. I'm also sure I could find something that would let me use a chest strap heart rate monitor as well. Then I start to get a head ache and forget about it.

So who can recommend a way to tie my smart phone in with a HRM, and a cadence sensor. The rest is already covered.

I've used both my old first gen Droid and my iPhone4.
Lately I've used Strava.
And have toyed with using MotionX GPS.
Since my bike isn't where I am and even if it was all I'd do is worry it was still in my room when I got back I don't know yet abut the MXGPS thing. It says it can connect to a HRSensor. Doesn't have any cycle specific toys, So, you could just make up your cadence and gigajoule energy output. I guess.
The single suck factor I've experienced with using the phone is it eats the battery quick. That damned Motorola Droid would suck the battery dry in about two hours with the GPS hunting its way around. The iPhone lasts about 7, or did when I could go that long. Now, I'm at a bit over a half hour so no worries. I don't listen to music when I run or ride. I have enough going on remembering not to puke on myself, and that the big flat hard thing is the ground.
Of course with Strava you have the added problem of always chasing some virtual rabbit out there in the ether who is forever bettering your times.

Android Phone.
I use Cardio Trainer. It says there is compatibilty with a heart rate monitor but I don't ride with one. No mention of cadence.
It used to barely last 2 hours but I had to do a hard reset on my phone and since then it will only use 50% or so on my ~2 hour ride. I guess one of the other programs was chewing up battery life. I DO listen to music while cycling.

Got one of these on order for my Trek Superfly 100.

http://www.pinkbike.com/news/SRAM-XX...Look-2012.html

The Trek dealership quoted me a price of $1500, installed. Fortunately I'm friends with the owner of another shop who has agreed to do it for just under $1000.

If you set up your levers correctly, chances are you can use one finger to brake with what you have on your bike already. It works for me with the crappy hydros that came on my Reign, I just mount them inboard of my shifters, so at normal grip the hooks on my brake levers align with my index fingers.

$1,000 = KOM - .Xseconds?

Its your $ do whatcha want, but that $ would've been better invested in riding more, eating less, and maybe a training plan.

My $.02

I'm already doing all those things, at no cost whatsoever.
