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.

Answers

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.

BB30 converter

My Scott Addict has a BB30 bottom bracket. It is fitted with a converter to accept 24mm axles like Shimano Hollowtech etc; I have tried to fit a Campag Veloce Ultra torque chainset but cannot get the shaft to enter the aperture. The Campag axle appears to be 25mm and will not fit even with force. Is this the case? I need an answer before buying any other chainset. Your help would be appreciated. R.H.

Answers

Answer: 
Due to Campagnolo drivetrain components not being compatible; this is likely the reason why the Veloce will not mount to the Hollowtech II Bottom Bracket.

However for more advice on this issue; please contact our Technical Department below:

Answers

Answer: 
The Nukeproof Mega TR cannot run a BB30 crankset due to how it has been designed.

It has been designed for use with a 24mm Spindle Crankset and Threaded BSA Bottom Brackets.

A SRAM GXP crankset would be the ideal crankset to be running with this frame.

Frame is a 2011 model and I want a crankset and bottom bracket. I think but probably wrong, the bottom bracket is a press fit GXP. So looking for a new bit of kit.

Answer: 
The 2011 Litening HPC Race ran a Press-fit BB, so you can use a Shimano BB71 or Press Fit GXP depending on which cranks you want to use.

My crankset bolt on my Gary Fisher Cake II DLX is stripped and I need a replacement for both the right and left arm, but it seems that most cranksets only supply the right arm. I'm looking to replace the Bontrager GXP (7050 Aluminum) 9-speed with a similar set. Can anybody recommend a good replacement that includes both the left and right arm? I'm itchin to hit the trail again! Thanks!

Answers

Answer: 
All our external bracktet chainsets include the non-drive side crank arm as well (it's often left out of stock marketing images but should always be included as standard).

GXP is a specific interface, so any of the SRAM/Truvativ sets below should act as a direct replacement.
