I'd recommend searching the existing posts first to narrow down your options.
You're asking what would fit in the Bottom Bracket, a simple search should tell you what the frame is built for and if you want to go bb30 or gxp for the crank

What carbon have you got C5, C10 or C15?

I've got an 2017 SL, and the BB is PF30. My bike came with a Praxis to GXP converter. If I were buying again I'd get a Hambini. https://www.hambini.com/bike-parts/hamb ... acket.html

Definitely go with Jagwire Elite Link outers and their best cables.

I use SRAM Force with Shimano 105 5800 brakes, work fine, but they aren't direct mount. I'm thinking of upgrading mine to EE or Dura Ace. Personally I dislike SRAM brakes, but love their drivetrains.

Kalloy Uno Stem.

If it were me I'd get clip-on TT bars as I ride on my own mostly.

sub 220 gram cf seat post and a fizik arione 00 :shock:

I couldnt find any fuji SL.It's sold as a bike with press fit BB30.But i guess that's the inside shell?!I m not an expert in this but outside it has the same size for all bb30 shell fit? That's why i am asking i don t wanna mess it sorry if i was asking for too much!

I don't right alone so i dont know if i will ever go for TT bars.I'm just thinking of going in triathlons maybe.

About the BB and cranks there are three basic modern crank spindles.
1. Shimano
2. SRAM GXP
3. BB386/BB30 (90mm)

You can use either the SRAM GXP or BB386/BB30 (90mm). But you need to decide which as there are two different spindles and therefore two different versions of the SRAM red crankset (I'd always choose GXP, heavier but more reliable and less creak IMHO).

Then there are a bunch of different frame shells BB30, PF30, BB Bright. AS far as I'm aware yours is PF30. BB30 and PF30 are the same size.

So you want to run SRAM red cranks? I'm not an expert so double check everything I'm telling you. :smartass: :thumbup:
There are two ways...
1. Is to put in a PF30 BB and press it into the frame and run it with the BB386/BB30 version of the cranks. This might creak like a b*tch though.
2. Buy a converter BB like a Praxis PF30 to GXP. https://praxiscycles.com/product/conv-bb-sram-gxp-road/ and buy the GXP version of the cranks.

What would I do? number 2.
Buy a Hambini BB (link above) PF30 to 68mm GXP or maybe a Praxis BB (same as the complete bike comes with). Then I'd buy a SRAM Red DZero power meter for it. https://www.sram.com/sram/road/products ... q1vtbt2u62 Kill two birds with one stone, if you need a power meter you'd be getting one of the best in the business (Quarq), and then you are saving the money you would have saved on a regular RED then needing a different power meter. I'd get it in 110BCD and put after-market 34-50 Praxis rings on it or 36-53 if lived somewhere flat.

CF seatpost. Sorry I just meant any carbon fiber seatpost. Richey seem to make light ones.

Kinda joking about the Fizik, just because that's what I'm saving for. :lol:
