You think that your bike's performance features could be enhanced with components selected á la carte at your local bike shop — and that you should be able to accomplish this despite the rise of deviant bottom bracket "standards" that have created component compatibility issues.

ROTOR conceived its Universal Bottom Bracket (UBB) concept to eliminate the complicated bottom bracket/crank compatibility challenge that has increasingly frustrated the mechanics at your LBS. The BSA is the "yes" component to "Is this compatible with my English-threaded BB shell?".
