    New frame with BB30, WTH?

    Ok so I've been totally out of the new bike / component world for over 10 years. I've just been riding my old 2003 era Merckx Alu frame with 10 Speed campy totally ignoring new things coming out on the market.

    I just picked up a Basso frame that takes a BB30 bottom bracket. So ok, what is this witchcraft? No threads? Is this a press fit? What BB do I need to pick up for this to be compatible with Campy Record 10-spd Ergo-Power cranks? do I need any special tools to install?

    Thanks

    BB30 has been around since 2008. Not really new or surprising. Yes it's press fit.

    You could just look on Campy's website

    I saw that but didn't see anything regarding 10 speed

    So looks like I need a special tool also, unless I DIY something
