    No problem - both frames have conventional BS-threaded bottom bracket shell.
    Make mine an Italian, with Campagnolo on the side..
  • Thanks Monty , briliant

    Yes, ISIS aren't exactly the most robust BB designs about

    What is the problem with them? I have just had one fitted along with a carbon chainset. :oops: In my haste a bought an FSA compact chainset at a bargain price, then realised I needed the ISIS BB, having said that I think I got a decent one, as a reasonable price.

    Is ISIS past its "sell by date", i.e. are they still making them or has something else replaced it? Does it use the same tools as Hollowtech II?
  • They do still make them, and they last fine if you get a decent BB (FSA platinum pro or the crank brothers one)
  • I got the FSA Platinum Pro ISIS Bottom Bracket from CRC for £30 + 1 FSA SLK Carbon Compact Chainset for £69.99.

    So not too bad and it should last a while.
