    Gossamer crank BB30 to 68mm question.

    Ok totally new, I am sure this has been asked before but I could not find any post for it.

    I wanted to build my own bike and figured I would start with some parts. While on CL I found a full Ultegra for a great price. The guy also gave me a pair of Gossamer cranks that fit into a 30 BB. they were free so I took them. I later found a killer deal on a Titanium frame so I purchased that also.

    I later notice that the frame takes a screw in 68mm BB.

    My question is does anyone make and adapter that I can use the Gossamer cranks with the 68mm BB. I was hoping Chris King made one but it's the weekend and closed so I could not call and ask.

    Thank you

    King has this nifty website where you can see everything they make. unfortunately that does not include a bb that allows you to use a BB30 crank on a 68mm threaded bb frame.

    Since the rest of your build is Ultegra, I'd stay with Shimano. Doesn't have to be Ultegra level.

    One example:
    Shimano 105 FC 5600 10-speed 50x39 Crankset - Road Bike Cranksets
