To anyone who owns a CAAD 6, how do you like the integrated cranks/BB? Is there any creaking that comes from the BB after a few thousand miles? I was looking at these frames, and that is my only concern.

I have an SI Hollowgram crank set on my mountain bike. It's about a year old now and I've clocked around 1500 miles on it. Included with the bike is a tool to remove the bearings if necessary and you can press in new ones with a headset press. I haven't found it necessary yet to replace them however. The BB bearings still run like new and without any play whatsoever. If that crank set can take the abuse of a mountain bike I'm sure it will hold up in a road bike as well.
