My gravels h-bar is set about an inch higher than my carbon road. Reach is the same and I actually just put the same bar on my carbon, an FSA Adventure bar in 46cm width. I really like this bar.

Some Truvative Elita cranks were GXP standard (24mm spindle on drive side, 22mm on non-drive). If that's the case with yours, a Sram GXP BB (external BSA) should work. They're about $30.

Just roll up a small piece of paper, insert it into the hole and let it unroll to fit the hole. I do the same with head tubes and bottom brackets when I paint a frame.

Do it! Had straight bar Cdale back when I got back into riding heavily again. Put clip on tri bars. Was great to have another riding position and picked up about 2 mph when "down and dirty".
