Crank compatability, EC90 cranks in TCR Advanced frame?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Crank compatability, EC90 cranks in TCR Advanced frame?

Can this be done with Giant's oversized BB shell? Could I just stick the Easton crank in using the Shimano bearings or would I need to find an adaptor for Easton's BB cups? Thanks

I dont think so since the non drive side arm cups over the external bearing. The EC90 crank isn't all that great anyway. Stick with DA

The Giant uses press-fit BB bearings, so unless Easton comes out with press-fit bearings, then the answer is no. You can, however use Shimano bearings and Sram bearings (which will let you use TruVativ, but who cares about Truvativ?)
