    Crankset Question...

    I have a '12 Talon that came with the factory Suntour XCT crankset with a threaded BB, I'm looking to replace it and was wondering if anyone would know if the Truvativ Aka Bb30 3.3 Crankset, 170Mm, 9 Speed, Bb30 would be a direct replacement?

    My wife bought one at my LBS and the guy there said it'd fit but I cant for the life of me figure it out, the bearing doesn't fit inside the bottom bracket/frame, does this bearing style sit outside the frame? Obviously I've never replaced a BB and am kinda lost so any insight would be great!!

    No, you need a GXP crankset for a threaded bottom bracket. Or external bearing Hollowtech.

    No, the bb shell is not compatible with BB30, this has been discussed in the Giant sub forum.

    You need a bb compatible with the Talon shell, any 2 piece crankset with external bearings or 3 piece with a 73x113 bb will work.
