Just picked my Blade RS up, looking forward to a nice long ride on it this weekend, and can confirm the Campy BB386 bottom bracket fits without issues Image

It’s the KMC X12, if you go for it make sure it’s states Shimano, SRAM and Campagnolo Road 12S compatibility on the box, as the SRAM 12S MTB version is in exactly the same box, and that’s the only way to tell!

using this on the Blade 795 RS - had no issues with the campy cups but wanted to try a thread together BB - been flawless for the last 3000km.

I have replaced the DS cransket bearing to a USB though after abt 6000km.

Hey guys, got a question for you.
If you run the modern wheels with internal width of 21-23mm, what is the maximum tires you can fit with clearance of 4-6mm?
Bikes:

Ax Lightness Vial EVO Race (2018.12.21)
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=156137
Paduano Racing Fidia (kind of shelved)
Open *UP* (2016.04.14)


Ex bike; Vial EVO D

When I bought my Blade they said this BB would be available again in 2023.... And if I click the link it is still sold out.

I run a wheelset with int dia of 21mm...28mm vit corsa control 2.0 (60psi) fits without issue. Some tyres expand more than others so it might be tyre dependant.

Hoping it's not, and is instead an all-rounder replacement for the 785, but it looks like the 795 replacement is going to be insanely generic, boring and not-really-aero, per the trend with a bunch of brands.

Was really hoping to see cues from the T20.

Announcement tomorrow.

What a relief, according to their IG it seems to be called the 765 Optimum. Guess it's an all rounder lower in the pecking order than the 795 rather than a replacement.

Hoping for that T20ish 795 replacement still.

The 765 now is an endurance bike. And they lost the dropped chainstay if I look at the profile. For the better! Not sure if it is in the lower pecking order. It is just a different bike with a different sort of rider.
