I love bb30 and pf30. Little trick I learned from using an eccentric BB for singlespeed... apply a thick coat of Oatey® Great White® Pipe Joint Compound With PTFE around the BB shell where it interfaces with the BB (just don't get it in on the bearing seals or wipe away the excess if you do).

Also, RE: MB01... I'd stay away from anything with polymer inserts. They'll eventually dry out and crack. Get your compliance from your wheels, not a seatstay gimmick.

Just a quick Q: do you have a MB01?

No. Polymer inserts have been around for a very long time though. They've always been prone to the same issues, and it's unfortunate Specialized decided to revive them.

...Just make sure you don't buy the PVC glue...
That could have some terrible consequences indeed :)
