I was under the impression that it wasn't possible to install a Campagnolo crank on a Cannondale BB30A bottom bracket. A fellow weenie showed me http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/WISHBONE-BB-Bottom-Bracket-frame-BB30A-to-Campagnolo-Power-Torque-crank-Black-/132239325347?epid=710093500&hash=item1eca13f8a3:g:grAAAOSwt6ZWV7NE].

However, I just came across http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CAMPAGNOLO-Lagerschalen-Set-Power-Torque-BB30A-73x42-IC15-PT7342-/152217035542?hash=item2370d7a316:g:7X4AAOSwaB5XvY1H which looks rather "standard" campangolo.

Extract:

Press-in diameter in frame: 42 mm
Wide bottom bracket housing: 73 mm
For Power Torque crank

Can any kind soul help? Is the second link possibly compatible?

Thanks for the reply but you're pointing to a standard BB30 link and not a BB30A type.

they do the same job, although the wishbone is the superior solution IMO. the second link shows the Campy version.

not quite sure why you would doubt it.
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.

Please note that campagnolo makes power torque cranks and ultra torque cranks. The linked products seem to be for power torque. There may be more options for power torque, but for the ultra torque the options are quite limited. I have experience of the ultra torque models only and can warmly recommend the wishbone bb30a25c model.

Following on from above, it seems Campag make BB30A press-in cups for Powertorque, but not, curiously, for UT.
