Hi, I'm new to the site and I need your wisdom!

My Ultegra 6800 broke and I am planning to replace it with a Rotor 3DF crank with a 30mm spindle. I've been asking a few of my friends but they all seem to have different answers on what bottom bracket I should use. I'm currently using a 2010 Giant TCR Advanced 2 which appears to have a Dura-Ace internal press fit. What are things I should buy/do for the Rotor crank to fit my bike?

Thank you in advance for your answers.

It's a 41mm shell and a 30mm spindle, so Rotor 4130 PF BB or similar is what you want.

Rotor 4130 it is. Max two seasons per peice, not very good sealing. Also, you won't be ablo to use front small chainring and two smallest cogs combination anymore.

Yep you need a 4130 bottom bracket, which is 41mm shell and 30mm inner diameter for the spindle. Best bang for your buck I have found is the Hope 4130 pressfit BB. Great quality and no creaks. Avoid Rotor BB if you can, as well as Race Face

Has anyone tried the brand Kogel? They said it was good but it's too damn expensive

With short chainstays, being on the small chainring, it will rub againts the big chainring with the 2 smallest cogs. When the chain is worn to its limits, it might also rub lightly on the 3rd smallest cog.
If you look at the design of modern Shimano big chainrings, you see that the teeth are offcenter towards outside to allow more room for cross chaining. Something that non Shimano rings tend not to have.

I think BB86 to 30mm spindle is one size Wheelsmfg doesn't make a threaded bottom bracket for.

I'll second the Hope 4130. It's certainly proved more robust than the Rotor 4130's that I have had. Going to move the bearings over to my new frame. They looked pristine after I removed them and they have been installed for a lot of miles and used in some foul conditions.
