BB30 adapter

Postby kleinstroker » Fri Nov 16, 2012 12:52 pm

My new Kuota KOM Evo frame is on it's way, which has a BB30 fitting, but I want to use my current GXP Sram red crankset with it. I know you can get adapters, but are they all the same? Prices seem to be from cheap less than £10 to silly more than £70, anybody else done this before, and how did you do it?

Thanks

i ve used the delrin style bushes from wheels mfg - £25 - and they ve been faultless, when/if the bb30 bearings fail i will replace the whole thing with a Praxis adaptor, which seems to be a longer term solution and still allows the use of a bb30 crankset if needed.

Unfortunately the Praxis adapters are not GXP compatible, so I think Ill order the wheels mfg set, looks just the ticket!
