It sounds like my bb is on its way out, terrible knocking noise when out today. So it says I have an fsa bb30 bb. But I have sram red crankset.

Whats a good replacement bb? Are there different sizes?

    Standard bearing, BB30 part number 6806-2RS, you can pick them up from any bearing and transmission outlet for just over £10 for the pair.

    Stripping and re-greasing the crank spindle and bearings regularly has so far stopped any clicking/knocking issues I've had with my BB30 bikes.

    I find the clicking/knocking is particularly bad after I've ridden in the wet or after I've done about 200 miles. From what I've read around the internet this is fairly normal, BB30 seems to require frequent maintenance but lasts quite well if looked after.

    Easy enough for diy with a couple of tools... bearing remover and installer.
    but shop should do parts cost approx £25 .. 1 hour labour.
    Your crankset isnt the bit that has worn out btw.
