    Giant Talon 3 BB Replacement

    Hello, I have a 2015 Giant Talon 3 and the BB is toast. I ride like a giant albino gorilla. Mostly XC.

    I know it has a FSA Catridge BB, but that's all the info I've been able to find. I'm looking to upgrade the crankset as well to a 11 speed. I already have the cassette and chain running a narrow wide chainring on the existing fsa crankset. I call it my frankenset. Works great.

    So what fits my frame? I'm hoping to use the Shimano SLX M7000 11 Speed Crankset.

    Thanks

    With a Shimano drivetrain, my guess is threaded bb aka BSA. I tried searching for the specs as well but the listing came with the same results you got, lol...

    Yeah, it's lame. I'll have to go to the lbs and see what they say there. I'll for sure report back here and post for future reference if anyone has the same problem.

    Or just post a couple pics. BB area where it interfaces with the frame and another of the crankset so we know what BCD the rings are.

    BCD is 104mm. Current crankset is
    FSA Dynadrive, 22/32/44

    I'll get some pictures later.
