Campy 10 speed drivetrain. Race Face, FSA or another. It will be going on a steel IF Crown Jewel.

Thanks.

I've been running the regular version on my MTB for about a year with no problems. I'm about 10 lbs heavier than you.

I talked to the FSA folks in Woodinville, WA directly and they recommendeded the basic Platinum Isis model. While I was more than ready to pay $100 for the Ti version, they said the Platinum is a much better bottom bracket. Apparently the Platinum Pro also has some of the longetivity problems of the Ti version due to bearings setup. A buddy just bought the Ti version so perhaps in a year I'll have a more definative answer as to durability between the two. If his is as trouble free as mine, I'll be pissed for having carried all that extra weight for nothing :)
