    Where can I get a BB30 Shell?

    Hi there,
    I am building up a frame and would like to use a BB30 shell (it would be quite cool). Where can I find one?
    Cheers!

    Steel? I would use a PF30 shell instead. Paragon sells them. Not sure about your part of the world though....

    The shell itself is heavier, but the BB and the crank are lighter...That being said definitely research the pros and CONS of BB30.

    Thanks for pointing Paragon out to me - their PF30 shells would have been perfect. If only shipping to New Zealand for one shell didn't cost 90 dollars.
