I am about to upgrade to FSA K Force Light with ceramic bottom bracket and was just about to clean the shell with a petrol dampened rag when the thought occurred that the petrol may damage the carbon frame.Anyone suggest what I hould use istead of petrol or will it be OK.Cheers

    If the thread is tapped into the carbon composite I'd be very suprised... Clean the metal threaded shell and you'll be fine.

    I use GT40 or citrus degreaser and an old toothbrush for cleaning threads, AAMOI. You're right to be wary of getting powerful solvents on composites though.
