I found a real good deal on a Stages BB30 FSA Energy power meter and I was wondering if it's compatible with my SRAM Force crankset. I know it's not ideal, but would it work at all? :noidea:

I suspect the spline interface is completely different and Q factor to be completely screwed up, if by any chance they did mate.

An energy chainset is probably as cheap as what you'd get selling your force one 2nd hand.

Or buy a force/rival version of stages and have done

I plan on using sram force with bb30 for my next build so I'm really curious about that question too! Does it fit?
I think a slightly different Q factor could be offset by adjusting the cleat.

and, there is no bb30 version of stage for sram, only for fsa.

Different spline, won't work at all.

So did you ever try the fsa-stages-force-bb30 mashup? Did you need spacers or wavy washer?
I'm facimg a similar scenario.

I heard that Stages uses FSA arms for SRAM plus news axle with correct spline.
