''Due to some longevity issue negative feedback BB30 is being dropped on the 2012 models to be replaced with BB86. Mind you, as BMC are moving towards Shimano for 2012 the BB30 would have had to go anyway. Our frame is fitted with adaptors to allow standard Shimano outboard bearing cups to be fitted to the BB30 'hole'. This means a slightly larger Q factor compared to the press fit BB30 & 86 versions though''

and thats mine

yeah bsa most likely

can you measure outside to outside with a slide measure, it seems to me these adapter have added quite a bit of width to the bottom bracket shell

the value we are looking for should be close to 68 mm
