I need help determining which bottom bracket I need for a 2014 Cervelo R3 frameset. I'll be using 2011 Campy SR (UT) cranks. I have limited experience with press fit bb's, but my frameset has a BB Right shell. Need recommendations for the correct BB (hopefully I've given enough info).
Thanks in advance.

Campy themselves make BB cups https://www.campagnolo.com/CA/en/Components/ultratorque_cups Carefull preparation and installation needed. Campy BB30 cups had a pretty poor rep.

BBInfinite are well reviewed and probably a better choice https://www.bbinfinite.com/products/bbright-directfit-campagnolo

No personal experience, just going by what I've read over the years.

You've chosen an unusual combo so there may not be too much choice.

The campy cups will fail.

If you are going to keep the bike and campy forever then BBInfinite, it's not really removeable

If you may sell it or change cranks then maybe this

You have to use the special loctite and activator ....

I'd agree that the wishbone style is much easier to install and remove, and probably better than either of my suggestions.

I'm running Campy on my 2012 R5 with Campy cups, so far so good I guess?..The frameset came with the PF BB already installed for Campy, I had my mechanic install the cups and complete the build. I installing a Campy gruppo from another frameset on the R3, I'll use your suggestions and get this thing built. I barely know what I'm doing here, so I appreciate the tips and advice!
