Im looking to build up a new frameset. However, this particular frame as pressed in bottom brackets (BB86). The frame is shipping with Shimano's press-in BB already installed and I assume all Shimano cranksets will work with it.
However, do SRAM cranksets mate with normal Shimano external BB? If so, would they be a fit for shimano's pressed in BBs?

I am also curious about this, therefore the bump.
There's not a whole lot of documentation on these botto brackets, and it seems to be called by various names. BB86, BB90, Shimano Press-fit, etc.

After some searching I found out the Hollowtech Shimano cranksets will all work with the Shimano press in. SRAM cranksets will require their version of the BB86 press in BB.
