Shimano Hollowtech (stages) crank arm to TruVativ crankset? FSA Gossamer?Adapter?...

Hello,
So I have the following problem:
Bike 1: Road bike with Shimano Ultegra crankset (hollowtech) with my stages PM on the non-drive side (my "regular" bike)
Bike 2: Road bike with TruVativ Elita GXP GigaXpipe 30/39/52T (my trainer bike)
Bike 3: Road bike with FSA Gossamer (travel bike I use out west)

Anyone know if there is an adapter(s) so that I can swap the Stages PM crank arm between bikes? or do I need a new crankset (will I need to get a new BB as well)?

Thanks for any insight!

If the Ultegra is a Hollowtech (not Hollowtech II) it uses an Octalink bottom bracket and isn't compatible with anything else.

Not compatible with the other brand cranks, no possible adaptors. Get shimano cranks for the other bikes or forget the power meter on those ones.
