    Measure the aperture you want it to fit and cross reference the size of the press fit ?

    Ross you need to use either wheelsmfg/enduro converter or the new Rotor bbright to gxp bb (only available form the US). I've just had to do the same thing to run my sram gear on the R3.

  • Thanks peteone, I'm using a wheels manufacturing adapter at the moment. I've used the same for my cannondale super six to convert bb30 to gxp but it started creaking like a bugger. Any creaks with the rotor option?
  • Put some anti seize pasta on the box/adapter, and the creaking should go away. Use it all the time on our Teams bikes

    No problem. I've only had it a week so only covered about 200m but so far so good, no creaks or squeaks. Inc shipping it works out the same price as a bb and adapters. Shipping only tooj 7 days too.

    What sort of pasta would you recommend? Fusilli, penne or good old fashioned spaghetti? :D
