Not sure if my bike has a BB30

I have THIS bike - still all stock components - but I want to upgrade the crankset to THIS SRAM Force crankset for use with a BB30. Excuse my ignorance, but I'm not sure if I have a BB30, any ideas?

UPDATE: OK, so it looks like I have a Truvativ Elita which is a GXP.

Which begs the question are they, can they ever be compatible?

No. SRAM makes the same Force crankset in a GXP version with a 24mm spindle. You'll never know the difference between the 24mm and 30mm spindle.
