    Sram Force BB30 crankset

    Hello,
    Im changing out my FSA BB30 gossamer crankset to Sram Force BB30 crankset. Before the groupset arrives, other that a 10mm Alen, is there any other tools needed to install the crankset?

    Nice swap, I did the same on my F5, very happy with results. Significant weight savings for the cost of the upgrade.

    Is the FSA Gossamer BB30 bottom bracket compatible with the SRAM Force BB30 crank? Or you will need to replace the FSA bb30 bottom bracket with Sram force bottom bracket?

    I did this same exact upgrade. When I did I talked with two stores about it and they both
    Told me that if your switch to SRAM then you have to use a SRAM bb30. The FSA BB30 is not compatible hopefully I didn't get roped into buying a new one when I didn't have to.

    It makes sense. So really the bearing set that was in for the FSA crank would have worked for the SRAM? Same spindle size? It wasn't old so I guess I didn't have to replace it.
    Lesson learned.

    How much weight saving is there by doing this, I'm contemplating doing it on my new CAAD 10.

    the easy way to figure that out would be to go to the FSA site and look...then go to the SRAM site and look. the weights are listed on both, i checked.

    In the time you took to write the post you could of just posted what you found. No problem I'll do it:

    FSA Gossamer Compact = 777g
    SRAM Force Compact = 645g
