Answer: 
SRAM brackets run a slight taper to suit the SRAM/Truvativ Spindles, so they are not a compatible fit for Shimano chainsets. You should use a SRAM chainset with a GXP (or GXP adapted) bracket. If you want to use a Shimano chainset you should switch your bracket out to a Shimano compatible alternative. The bracket standard required will also depend on the frame you are using.

Answer: 
Sram uses GXP BB instead of Shimano external BB. So, most cases, that will not be compatible.

Compatibility

I have a Scot Foil (2013) with a BB7141 press fit BB 24mm spindle. Currently fitted with an Ultegra chainset. Can I fit the FSA SL-K chainset to this frame. Also does the FSA chainset require a specific press-fit BB ?

I tried to fit a similar FSA chainset and it was a very tight fit (spindle to bearing diameter).

Answer: 
The FSA chainsets will fit to a Shimano Press-Fit bottom bracket, but it is a very tight fit (the seals are around 0.3mm smaller).
Ideally you should aim to use an FSA Press Fit bracket.

Answer: 
Usually, Shimano external BB system is compatible with 24mm spindle FSA cranksets. If you have 24mm spindle FSA SL-K, you don't need to worry about the compatibility. On the other hand, Just one thing different from FSA system from Shimano is K-forcelight BB cup is a bit narrower than Shimano standard BB cup. This is why some cranksets include spacer or tension washer. Especially, the tension washer is very important for K-forcelight cranksets or Vision trimax series cranksets but this isn't required if you use those FSA cranksets with Shimano BB or any other FSA BB except RED color ceramic BB(8700 series usually included when you purchase K-forcelight crankcset or Vision trimax series cranksets.) you don't need to insert the washer.

Triple to double conversion BB30

I want to change out the Shimano 105 triple setup on my CAAD10 to Ultegra double group.
If I keep with BB30, I need to get a different crank as well.. so; will a FSA SL-K light 10 speed crank do the job?
And if not, which to choose to suit the Ultegra group ... BUT also avoid adapting from the BB30???

Answer: 
A 3-piece crankset is generally much lighter, much stronger and more adjustable.

The 1-piece crankset for BMX is very much a thing of the past and rarely manufactured.

Answer: 
Generally 3pcs will be better in many reasons.
Axle stiffness, weight, compatibility, customizing, arm variation, maintenance....
but as you already assumed, this isn't absolute.

1pcs way is now an old school tech in BMX industry but this is still good in style and expressing yourself.
Best way to find the better crankset is simple.
Just find, buy and install what you want.

Answers

Answer: 
Are you going to replace a double to another double setup?
Then this will be ok.
Please be noticed that the only and major difference between triple front mech and double mech is the shape and height of the inner blade for smallest ring(smaller then 30T) support. Also, this inner blade shape is very important and correlated to the tooth difference between the outer and the middle ring.

More over even a triple front mech can be used for most of double chainsets but this isn't recommended if the tooth difference between the outer and the middle ring is very big. But even this can be solved if the front mech is re-installed to a bit higher position with tighter cable adjustment.

The tooth difference and range(53-39) will allow you to place the crankset.
Please decide the height of the front mech carefully.

Answer: 
6500 series chainset is a standard and looks very general.
You may use other compatible Shimano chainrings in function and in design.
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/kr/en/s?q=50t+triple
The link will show you the chainrings which are now available in CRC.
FC-6500 is b type double chainring crank but other triple chainrings will be compatible too.

Answer: 
Unfortunately the teeth on the 10-speed chainring are too wide to shift accurately and efficiently, making the 11-speed crankset the ideal component be run within the drivetrain.
