Hi, as above I need to find a shimano pressfit fitting that'll take a 30mm axle

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance!

    There isn't one , Shimano axles are 24mm wide. So all their bottom brackets (outboard and pressfit) only take 24mm spindles.

    What frame is it and which chainset are you trying to fit ?

    Another brand will have the option you need.

    I might have not given full info.
    It's standard shimano size on a moda finale, and I'm trying to have a a bb30 sram red chain set fitted.
    My previous frame a stretto had a pf30 bottom bracket but it doesn't fit this new frame despite us thinking it would.
    I know rotor make them I just wondered if anywhere else does?

    Right your frame is 'Press Fit 86 BB' taken from the Moda website.

    Digging around it doesn't look like it will be compatible.

    There is probably an option to fit the GXP version of the Sram Red chainset. You might want to think about switching it out for that.

    Thank you - I think you got there before I did
    It's at the lbs and we've been chatting a bit. There is an option for rotor who do one, however the spindle. On the cranks won't be long enough.
    So I'm going to take in the Gxp version of the sram red I took off to swop for the compact (the process of which caused the frame damage and the pickle I'm in) and see if I can find a swoppsies for my bb30 cranks for a Gxp version!
    Thanks for the help, I've read about bottom brackets for nearly 3 hours now!!
