    SRAM PF30 to BSA adapter

    I just bought adapter as I want to install shimano bb to my Focus Izalco Max frame with PF30 carbon shell.
    I however can not find manuals for installation on SRAM website.
    Do I need to use washer and spacer which came with adapter and do I need to grease adapter prior to installation?

    Going from memory here. And I'm assuming you mean the threaded plastic press-in cups?

    Definitely - NO GREASE.

    You need to screw the BSA cups to the adapter halves before installation, then press in. Loctite would be recommended I'd think.

    There have been much better solutions made since this came out - Praxis for instance.

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
