BB30 convertor

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used one of these?

http://www.wiggle.com.au/fsa-bb30-conversion-kit/

 

I currently have a FSA crankset with BB30 on my bike and I wanted to swap to a shorter 165mm cranks, which seem to be quite hard to find. I also have a spare Ultegra 6700 crankset with the right arm length so I’m thinking of getting the converter and then change to the Ultegra crankset.

 

Has anyone done it?…would you recommend it or are there better options?

 +1 for Praxis I've been using one on my bike for a few years without any problems.

Yeah I went with the Praxis BB. But if you want some BB30 165mm cranks pretty sure I has some SCRAM Force at home. I'll never use em (I hate sram, double tap just isnt my thing)

Same here. I bought my Bianchi in Feb 2015, then I fitted a Praxis for Campag about 2mths later and had no issues at all. The Campag version does not have bearings as part of the adaptor, so I change them once a year anyway.   One thing to note, you will need two BB tools to fit Praxis.

Thanks willie, I'm definitely interested, could you have a look and let me know? Also how much you'd be after?

Thanks

A couple of millions should get it done :lol: maybe $70? Not sure what rings, but more than likely 53-39

Another option...c-bear. Haven't checked they actually do it, but it's a great option!

I got the BBright to GXP converter. It's brilliant.

I looked at those for my P3 but it meant another specialist tool to fit, so I didnt bother and went with the Wheels Mfg push in adaptors for Shimano. Been fine for 18mths so far.
