Ref - Swapping a Super six Evo chainset hollowgram/spiderrings 2013 to Dura Ace 9000 advice.

So much as I appreciate the weight and stiffness of the Cannondale Chainset, I am finding the length too long for my diddy legs - especially 53/39 on a 54cm frame. As such, thinking about taking it off and going Dura Ace but unsure how to adapt it to a shimano BB as obviously BB30.

Any tips appreciated. Furthermore, whilst it is apart, can I put a chris king in there to take Dura Ace...?

Thanks in advance.

I just did the same thing on a supersix evo himod frame. I used the praxisworks conversion bb. Its the best solution to this.

A bit of searching would find you many different solutions to put Shimano cranks in a BB30 frame. There's two types- adapters that match the Shimano spindle to BB30 bearings, and adapters that fit into a BB30 shell and contain smaller bearings that take a Shimano spindle. The first kind are lighter and easier to install. Wheels Mfg makes the most common ones. I don't think Chris King makes either type.

Of course you don't need to go to 9000 to get a shorter crank as Hollowgrams can be had in many lengths too.

If it is just the length that is the problem, then change the cranks for a different length perhaps?
If you are thinking it is the 53/39 that is the problem, then change the chainset.

53/39 is diameter of chainwheel gear not length.

Cycling Sports Group can supply them. I recently ordered a set of SiSLs in 170mm. 4 week wait from Germany. Worth it though. They may have more in stock for immediate dispatch now though. They do have an eye-wateringly expensive RRP.

If you want the Praxis BB (which is indeed the best option for running Hollowtech 2 IMHO) Upgrade Bikes supply those. Stock is limited on the BB30 version but the PF30 will work if you remove the sleeve.
