    GXP or BB30 on a BB86/92 frame

    I am riding a canyon inflite A frme and at the moment are running ultegra cranks on it. The frame needs a BB86/92 bottom bracket.

    Now I would like to do 2 things:
    1. get rid of the terrible creaks in my BB
    2. upgrade to SRAM Force 1

    To get rid of the creaks I would like to use this BB:

    BB86/92 Thread Together Angular Contact BB for 24/22mm (SRAM) Cranks - Black

    The website says it is madefor 24-22 cranks. Which cranks is this? GXP? BB30? Do I have a choice between these of wil only 1 of them work with my frame?

    GXP is a good choice. It's spindle is 24 mm except for the NDS end which is stepped down to 22 mm.

    Only this or Shimano or compatible will work in your frame. That's what it was designed for. Not BB30.
    We just don’t realize the most significant moments of our lives when they’re happening
    Back then I thought “well there'll be other days”
    I didn’t realize that was the only day

    There's sometimes a buggy.
    How many drivers does a buggy have?
    One.
    So let's just say I'm drivin' this buggy...
    and if you fix your attitude you can ride along with me.
