Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

If you find more errors please post it here: http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=139062

Yes, I'm fairly certain that should work, I'm running Ultegra 6700 cranks on a BB86 shimano pressfit and believe it will work equally well; however haven't used an FSA BB86.

I'm wondering if they'll work the other way around, a Shimano BB86 with a SRAM GXP/FSA crank

I write the weightweenies blog, hope you like it :)

The drive side bearing will work. GXP nds spindles are tapered down to a smaller diameter iirc

As long as the bb86 pressfit adapters are not for FSA K-Force Light or SLK Light, then there should be no issues with Shimano cranks. I learned the hardway while trying to find more economical hybrid ceramics, that the spindle of the FSA K-Force Light and SLK Light cranksets are ~.5mm larger in diameter thus will not fit into a BB86 pressfit adapter that is designed for Shimano Hollowtech II spindles.
