I want to upgrade my 105 groupset on a 2008 Cannondale Synapse Carbon Frame. The Force uses a BB30 BB. Does anyone know if its possible to swap the existing Hollowtech BB for a BB30 ? and is it a dealer job or something I can do myself ?

    You'll need a BB30 frame (rather than one with BSA BB threads), otherwise you won't be able to fit a BB30 crank.

  • Are you sure ? - It contradicts what my nearest Cannondale dealer said i.e. they could fit the SRAM Force components - but the quoted cost could've easily included a new frame !!

    You can fit a Force crankset, but it won't be a BB30 Force Crankset.

    Force is available in both GXP and BB30 versions. If you are swapping from HT2 then you just need to fit a GXP BB with the force set. If your frame uses a Cannondale SI BB then I am not sure what you need. Either way A BB30 set will only Fit a BB30 frame as Red says.
