Hi there, just about to get a Cannondale with BB30. I'd like to use a Campag Ultra-torque chaninset. I've had a look at Ribble and there are 2 sizes. Does anyone know which one I should get?
BB30 68x42
BB30 68x46

  • IIRC you need the 42's for BB30, the 46 is designed for Cervelo BBRight

    You'll also need to loctite them in place, it would be worth reading this long thread for info

    To be honest, this looks like a better solution:

    Freeborn bikes stock the Shimano version but dont show the campy version on their site yet, might be worth giving them a call http://www.freeborn.co.uk/praxis-works- ... converters

    search on Wheels Manufacturing, Praxis, Rotor...they all do adaptors for Shimano, maybe Campag too.

  • The Praxis solution looks really good, I spoke to them a few weeks ago to ask about the Ultra Torque version the reply was:

    "Yes, we have a Campy version in the works now. It is still in R&D testing but we hope to release it by the end of the year."

    Hi there, thanks a lot for this really helpful information. I'll contact Praxis to see how long it will take for theirs to be on the market, and have a look at the WW site re the campag version.
    Best wishes.

    the Wheels manufacturing one worked really well for me. it's plastic (delrin) so has a bit of give to account for imperfect alignment.

    in fact my BB bearings lasted longer with the adaptors than they did after i went back to a bb30 crankset.

    This also looks cool, you get new bearing as well, and from the pic, you use the red cones to downsize from 30mm to 24mms. But with alu on alu on steel it would need a lot of grease to stay quiet. http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/toke ... -prod69679
