Santana and BB 386 Cranks

Just noticed they have BB 386 cranksets on their site but no real info on them.
What brand, what do they look like etc. Time to get rid of my original cranks with octolink BB.

BB386 denotes a pressfit bottom bracket so they won’t fit your tandem. If you have octolink bb’s then as they will have a bsa thread you will need to replace them with another crankset which uses a bsa type bb.
If you’re replacing your crankset then have a think about changing to a double chainring setup so the shifting will be better and you could use right hand drive which means you could use standard road cranks
