    'Fraid it would be the Scattane for me purely and simply on the basis that it has a standard English threaded BB whereas the Radon has a Shimano Pressfit.

    I'm sure there will be plenty out there who have pressfit BB's and have never experienced any problems but I have also seen many other threads bemoaning the integrity of their pressfit set-ups and looking to swap to a more conventional design. IMHO the pressfit concept is a bit questionable and I would rather have the security of a threaded system.
