    BB adapter or Hollowgram BB30 SL crankset?

    Should I use a SI BB adapter (kit KF365) so I can use an older XTR crankset with my Rush 08? Or should drop more $$$ into the bottomless pit and find a Cannondale Hollowgram BB30 SL?

    120? that can't be right? they usually go for around 400 if new/mint/in good condition.

    def go for a bb30 crank. If Cannons are too expensive there's a more alternatives to choose from than ever before. BB30s are lighter, stiffer and less maintenance dependible (doesn't need much i would imagine) than regular cranks with external bearings. Go for it! Remember, ebay is your friend

    Today ebay was my friend, I found a nice new crankset and BB for $365. Not bad considering my LBS was going to charge over $600.

    I heard there are several proprietary tools for Cannondales. Will I need a specific tool for the BB installation? Lefty fork?
