Are you sure it's the BB and not the pedals (or pedal threads), or bars or post? Lots of things sound like they're a BB creak but are coming from other issues.

Great find.

I had an almost identical Concorde Aquila (mine was a 62 cm and had 1989 World Cup Team decals on it) until I got rear ended by a car at a stoplight. Loved that bike.

They actually didn't pull them from Makuri and modified one of the Makuri bots to be 3.8 W/kg. Also added a 2.0 W/kg to Makuri and a 3.0 W/kg to Watopia.
