I have an FSA BB30 bottom bracket that comes with a wave washer, and I'm going to be running it with an SRAM Red Exogram crank. Since the crank has a preloader built in, do I still need to use the wave washer?

I have this setup on a FELT DA2 and we do use the wave washers. I think it helps keep the cranks in place.

I don't use the wave washers in mine. Instructions not terribly clear, but that's how I read then!

I guess I'll try it with the washer. It goes on the drive side, right?

If the non drive side has the threaded preload assembly then you should not use a wavy washer.

Just tighten it to the recommended torque.
Take out any extra play with the preload nut and tighten the set screw.
Do not use any wave washers.

GXP and BB30 are quite different systems. :shock:
There's sometimes a buggy.
How many drivers does a buggy have?

One.

So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
