Bit of a mechanical newbie...looking to upgrade the crank on my giant which i believe is a BB30..can you fit a hollowtech 2 type crank to a bike that has a BB30? i have a fsa slk light could i fit this to the giant??

I have done the google search and there appear to be a couple of 'adapters' is it that uncomplicated?

many thanks for the direction..

    you can pick up an adapter for 20 quid which converts it to a 24mm axle

    I think that Giant use BB86, I'm not positive so check your model on the Giant website.
    My mates Giant TCR takes a standard Shimano crankset but uses a press fit BB.
