Replacing the BB on a 2017 YT Capra Comp AL

Need to replace the BB on the wife's bike. While YT's site is a bit rubbish at info for older models, Vital tells me the current one is a Race Face BB92. I have the tools to do a PF BB fairly easily but it creaks. Are there any easy options to convert to a threaded BB setup? I'm assuming some sort of sleeve would be needed that might still creak? If I stick with PF what BB do people recommend? The Race Face one hasn't lasted long at all.

cheers

  • Info in Vital is wrong - it's a PF30 and looks to be a 73mm frame

    I replaced the push fit bb on my Trance with a Wheels Manufacturing screw together one. It has been faultless and creak-free.
