I have a Canyon Ultimate SLX 9 Pro, which is Campy Record 11 mechanical and has an Ultra-Torque BB.

If, hypothetically, I wanted to convert the bike to eTap and run a SRAM Red crank, is this possible? Can the BB on this bike be swapped to GXP without using some kind of creaky adapters?

You or LBS will have to take the Ultra-Torque cups out and replace it with SRAM's standard gxp for bb86 which is like $30usd.

You'd lose the brake tension release functionality with E-tap levers and Campy rim calipers.

Thanks. So in other words, very do-able? No need to buy a new bike with SRAM already on it?

My plan would be to strip the bike down to bare frame and rebuild from ground up, and then use the Record stuff for a different bike.

Totally do-able. If you have the tools, easy to do at home. If not, def take to a reputable shop
