    New Crankset

    I'm looking for a new crankset for my Tommaso. I have a compact crank and want to move back to a 53/39. The bottom bracket is an English 68 (FSA Mega EXO). Will a GXP fit this? I'm looking at a SRAM Red GXP new online.

    Your best bet for guaranteed compatibility is to replace the bottom bracket with the SRAM version. The $40 you spend on it will possibly save you a lot of aggravation.

    I've seen a guide somewhere online for whose BB's are compatible with whose cranks. Can't remember where though.
