    Best BB30 adapter option

    Apologies if this has been covered, I searched back a few pages.

    What's the best (light, inexpensive, reliable, etc) option for adapting a bb30 frame to a gxp type bottom bracket?

    Wheels Mfg is the best one for BB30. KCNC and FSA makes noise and develops play. The Wheels Mfg one is a 24g/pair precision component and installs in nearly 10 seconds:

    The cups are much better than the sleeve. I run the same style adapter on my road bike and its been super smooth with no play/problems.

    FSA makes a similar one to the wheels mfg now.

    BB30->Mega Exo.

    But I THINK, mega exo is 24mm spindle standard so Shimano cranks should fit.

    CC sells them

    make sure you get a GXP style BB - NOT MegaExo. They are not the same.

    The sleave style is only really a good idea if you want to installl a square taper, ISO or Octalink BB. Otherwise, use the cups.

    And I second the above - GXP and Mega Exo are not interchangeable. Mega Exo and Shimano are the same, though.

    If you go with the wheels mfg adapter, you still need to use the bb30 bottom bracket bearings.
    The adapter cups actually go into the bb30 bearings.
    Something to keep in mind if you don't already have a bb installed in the frame.
    So, you'll need the adapter set & bb30 bearing set.
