    BB is popping, time to change but I have no idea what "type" it is......

    Its a 2008 Felt F3 Carbon frame. I dont think it is a BB30 because all the 2011 frames are boasting "bb30" on the frame. Id like to change it out myself but If I ordered the wrong one, Id be bent as broke as I am. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks!

    I took mine apart to see what kind it was then ordered that. You'll be down till the new one arrives but that's what back-up bikes are for.
    more cops have been killed by donuts than guns in chicago it is a medical fact ask any doctor.

    Shouldn't take long to remove the BB, check out what you need then reinstall it.

    assuming you've got a crank puller and the right bb tool, right?
    Punctuation is important. It's the difference between "I helped my uncle, Jack, off a horse" and "I helped my uncle Jack off a horse"

    According to Felt's website it is a Shimano Hollowtech II. I would imagine if your bike has a Dura Ace group, then you would want the Dura Ace BB. If this is correct (cant hurt to follow up with a LBS) all you should need to change the BB is a 5mm allen wrench and a Park BBT-9 or something similar.
