Bottom Bracket

Postby awesterhoff » Fri May 17, 2019 18:08 pm

Hi there,

I’ve recently purchased a Cannondale CAAD10 Track frame.

I want to make sure that the following bottom bracket and crank work together with the frame. According to Cannondale’s website the stock one is a SRAM BSA, but I’m not going to use a Sram crank.

Can anybody confirm these if the below works?

SRAM BB30 - https://www.bike24.com/1.php?content=8; ... 10620%5D=1

Miche Prista - https://www.bike24.com/1.php?content=8; ... 5B285%5D=1

Thanks :-)

No

With that crank on a track bike that has a BSA bottom bracket you need this:

Most (if not all) track bikes have a threaded bottom bracket and use the old style square taper BB with track cranks

However, you can use any brand of square taper JIS BSA BB as long as the axle length is right for the crank, in this case 107mm
