Hi! I am new to the forum, I am planning to buy a canyon aeroad frame and build it with sram red etap and stages power meter. I have noticed that most of similar builds come with gxp BB, does anyone know if the aeroad BB shell would allow a BB30 instead? I would need the information to decide which stages power meter spindle to buy

    The canyon has a PF86 bottom bracket, so you will need a type of conversion bottom bracket to use BB30 cranks: ... acket.html

    Not all BB30 cranks are compatible so you'll need to do your research - spindle length must be greater than 104mm apparently.

    Going GXP might be easier, although I understand with SRAM red a fair amount of weight is added by doing so.

    I believe the BB386 SRAM red cranks should be OK but perhaps someone else can confirm?
