Hi all,

I've got a vague recollection the FSA FSA MegaExo and Shimano Hollotech2 chainsets even though they are different standards and compatible?

Thanks

    In what respect?

    Limited number of possibilities really.

    Sounds like he's considering putting

    A) a MegaExo chainset into a Hollowtech II BB or

    B) a Hollowtech II chainset into a MegaExo BB

    So, is either of these possible??

    I have literally no idea what you are on about. Maybe try rephrasing the question...

    Yes, some models of MegaExo chainsets and BBs are intercompatible with HT2, in particular Gossamer cranks and 6000 bottom brackets. However, most FSA carbon models aren't as they use the narrower 8000 series BBs.
