Sealed cartridge bearing BB in Carbon Frame

Any reasons why this is not a good idea? Have some Stronglight 165cm cranks that I want to setup 1x10 for Cyclocross. Any reasons why an older style BB won't work in carbon frame?

Many thanks

    give spa cycles a call, they stock stronglight and recommend sealed b.b's with some of there chainsets.
    always helpful and knowledgeable.

    Depends all on the frame and BB standard.....
    IF BSA, no problems, otherwise you need adapters.
