How can you tell if an SL3 frame is OSBB or standard threaded? Bought one recently and only need to know now as about to source cranks and possible adaptors. Many thanks.......

    Threaded will have threads to screw in the bb. OSBB will be smooth for a push in.

    SL3 is Specialized.

    OK thanks chaps - no threads, so OSBB it is. I want to use a Shimano DA7900 or Ultegra 6700 chainset with it and move over SRAM components from another bike. Can anyone recommend adaptors?

    I have just got one of these for my SL4. Used one previously on a pf30 frame and they work. Praxis have just released an OSBB version, so got one !
