    New to BB30 - Cranks suggestions please?

    Hi. I recently ordered a Scott CR1 Pro frame/fork. It's BB30 compatible so I'm gonna be needing a new crankset and bottom bracket. I've narrowed down the choices to (in order from most to least interested):

    SRAM S-951
    FSA SL-K Light
    SRAM Red
    FSA K-Force Light

    Opinions?
    (I'm gonna be running full 105 on the bike.)

    **The Scott is actually BB86.

    Well If you intend on possibly going with a SRM meter ever, go with the 951s. Personally I never liked FSA cranks. Had a force crankset on my supersix when I built it up. That was nice and smooth, shifted well. I ran fill SRAM so I kept it in the family.

    Now I know its a scott, but if you want to venture into the weight weenie region. Find a set of Cannondale SLs. ~590g with the BB bearings.

    I thought the Scott was Shimano press fit, not BB30?

    Actually yeah, my mistake. It looks like BB86(?)

    I was thinking of picking up a set of Dura Ace 7900s for $250.

    I'm a bit lost.
    I've only been able to find one Shimano BB86 bottom bracket. (Maybe I'm not looking hard enough)

    Also found a ceramic-bearing BB86 bottom bracket, but it's just two cups? Will either type work?

    Rotor? They are light and stiff, and you can play with the round or Q rings. If you get their 110 BCD version, you have choices for both compact (50x34) and mid-compact (52x36).

    Why not Cannondale cranks?
    They are light and stiff.
    Didn't they invent the BB30 system?
    I have a set of the older SLs and they are so well designed.

    Ask the bike shop you're buying the frame set from to supply suitable BB bearings and headset. Better still, get them to press the BB, headset cups and fork crown race before they ship to you. If you go with Rotor, SRAM or FSA cranks then you'll need to get a matching BB for your frame otherwise standard Shimano PF cups will work with any of their Hollowtech II cranksets. A BB30 crank won't fit your frame.

    This is correct.
