Hiya,

Have a BB30 from (Volagi Liscio) and have just ordered a FSA Powerbox crank. I’ve also ordered the spacers from FSA to take up the extra spindle length but was wondering if there is a better solution ?

It seems that the Praxis and Wheel Mfg screw together versions can’t do what I need and the Torq Tite ones can but are almost A$300 locally !!!

FSA do one but it is just overlapping sleeves and not what I’m really after.

Are there any alternatives ?

Thanks

Looks like CBear does one but it's probably expensive also.

Rotor make dedicated BB for 386 in PF30.

I can be wrong, and have plenty of examples for that ;)

My understanding is that the PF30 ones are no good as my frame is BB30 (PF30 being 46mm OD vs 42mm for BB30)

Is that correct ?

I’ll look at the CBear ones. Kogel are pricey too !!

Yes. I looked at Rotor and they are PF30 only.

Thanks to those that have replied. A fair bit more googling and chasing, I have found the following ;

C-Bear : do a BB-BB30-386-R (ceramic bearings) for RRP of Euro 129, but haven't found a supplier yet
HSC - No options
Praxis Works - No Options
Wheels Mfg - No Options
Tri peak - do a Steel bearing (BB30-386-PKSBTF12) for A$178 delivered & a Ceramic (BB30-386-PKCBTF12) for A$225 delivered via eBay
Wishbone - do a Ceramic (BB30386) for A$178 delivered via eBay
FSA - Spacers for ~ $10
Token - Spacers for ~ $10
F1 Ceramics - No Options
Torq Tite (Enduro Bearings) - Euro250 + tools + shipping from Bike 24

There are some other press together (vs Screw together) versions, but if I go for an adaptor, it will be threaded.

Looks like Wishbone is the best option so far.

Any others I have missed ?

Thanks

Michael

Just email C-Bear directly, Paypal & they'll send you one out.

Kohler is USD $199 + shipping, and looked up the B.B.Infinite is out of stock of the one I need, and list price is US $205.

I’ll try emailing C-Bear and see what they say. Would their price include the 19% VAT ?

Thanks

no personal experience with C-Bear but in general any EU vendor who does business outside the EU will have the ability to strip off the VAT when exporting.

Some of the candidates are press-in. And since cost is a consideration, you need to consider the additional tools that may be required for them.

I thought most C Bear were press-in, they appear to be. Also BBinfinite I think.

I'd prefer screwed-together for ease of installation and removal. Which currently looks like Kogel and Wishbone.
