From further research the wheels manufacturing one appears better than the enduro one.

Sorry mate, I didn't see this thread, but I had all sorts of issues with Enduro adapters, to the point where I would never use any press for adaptor again.., the Wheels however maybe far an above the Enduro version... Conceptually though, as u know. These BB are notorious for being noisey... So I would hate to introduce a whole new interface for noise and movement/wear to emanate from...

Given there is now a rotor BBright/GXP PF BB available, there must be a similar option in line from shimano?

Thanks for replying mate. I've been busy and not on the forum of late also.
Bloody computer died also so we bit the bullet and got a mac. I've had a gutful of windows over the years :x
I did a bit of research on the enduro adapters and it might have been your thread on the Cervelo forum that turned me off them.
I've got the 177.5 cranks in now using the wheels mfg adapter. All good touch wood.
Not sure about the longer cranks on the roadie. They worked on the tt but not sure on the roadie, I think the legs might fatigue a bit quicker with them. Early days yet though.
That rotor bb looks fantastic. Good way around a terrible (IMO) system. If I persist with the longer cranks or upgrade to shimano 11 sp that will be the way to go. Thanks :)

I have one of those on the way, well the custom GXP version that Rotor USA produce.

Currently have a GXP Quarq installed on my S5 w/ an Enduro adaptor.

The bike goes through phases of creaking, which, given previous reading, I assumed was down to the adaptor. After getting really bad about two weeks ago I finally bit the bullet last week and ordered the Rotor BB from the US.

I've since tightened my pedals (and added a washer which was missing) and almost all the creaking has disappeared :D :D :D

All good so far with the wheels mfg adapter and DA7800 cranks, the bb has never been quiter :D
Starting to think the Sram s900 cranks were the source of a few intermittent creaks.
