Have a Pinnacle Dolomite 2, think it's a 2013 bike. Has a square taper BB and chainset on at present, and I want to put SRAM 10 speed stuff on. I don't need the chainset to be SRAM, but obviously does need to be 10 speed and compatible.
I think the BB shell is 68mm and I'd assume English, as it's a Pinnacle.
The best I can work out, I think I need either GXP and SRAM or Hollowtech 2 and Shimano - am I right in thinking there are no other sizes to worry about these days?
I'm coming from the last major upgrade I did on a mountain bike millions of years ago when you needed to worry about BB axle size and chain line and so on.

    The crankset determines what BB you need.
    Doesn't need to be one with 10 speed designation, 9/10/11 speed will do the job.
    The current crankset will work fine with SRAM 10 speed stuff.

    I never considered that to be honest! Having noted how fat the chain was on the 8 speed stuff, I assumed the chainrings would be fatter etc. I think I might just slap a front mech on and give it a go then! Thanks! :)
