My Rose Xeon RS has a BB83 bottom bracket according to the paperwork that came with it.

I want to run a shimano crank so what BB's do I have the choice of?

BB83 is yet another name for the BB86/'Shimano pressfit', so a standard Shimano pressfit will fit. See my post about the naming confusion here:

That is for a BB30/PF30 frame, which is not what the OP has.

Thanks. Turns out I needed a Shimano BB72 bottom bracket which confused me a bit until reading that article and realising its not a different standard just a product name
