Who makes BB386 EVO frames?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Orbea and Lightweight...those are the only two that I can name off the top of my head.

Personally, I think it's the best BB standard, and am surprised that so few brands use it.

Now there's a fun debate . Personally I like anything that isn't pressfit and like my bb386 cranks.

My track frame uses a Vision crank. I think the BB is a 386 EVO. It has a threaded shell, so they must make adapters for other frame situations.

OPEN's bikes are BB386EVO. (I wish they were T47. With a T47, an OPEN U.P. could be the ultimate bike.)

Isn't 386evo talking about the internal dimensions with regard to fitting the crankshaft? You can find both threaded and press-in bb's that accommodate a 386evo crank and fit in several different types of BB shells.
