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.

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

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.
