Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

Which model GXP bottom bracket for omniums?

Today I just picked up a pair of used sram omnium cranks on craigslist and it came with neither chainring or GXP bottom bracket; hey I can't blame the seller because you can't beat the price I got them for.

Anyways, from some research online I found there's actually different model GXP BB's for road and mountain; and then the different sram groups.

Anyways from what I remembered when I viewed my complete 1st set in my LBS right before they installed them for me; the BB appeared transparent. Just like this one: http://www.amazon.com/TruVativ-Team-...6601358&sr=8-2. Would this be the correct one? Just double checking before I order.

They have very mixed reviews...I've seen a blown one before and have read about them blowing up on here. Many people love theirs though, so it's really hard to say if it's exactly "good".

Err I meant good as in how the GXP BB's from the different road groups are interchangeable.

Sorry, I'm stupid sometimes...

It says it is recommended for road cycling, assuming that it means it is English threaded...?

Sorry for not helping.

Yeah it says that on the site but I'm just making sure as returns with amazon are a PITA.....

There's no need to be sorry lol

Cool; now how how will these look on a chrome paramount?
I am seriously thinking of throwing these on and riding it as a conversion it for fun. As I've seriously not ridden it at all since I bought it as a frame.

ALL Sram/Truvativ GXP bottom brackets are interchangeable. They cups/bearings are all the same. For mountain they use a variety of spacers depending on shell width but for road/track you can put any one of them in there (correct threading of course) without spacers and it will work.
