    How to run 2x10 Shmano XT crank on Flash 29er

    Should I use the Press in sleeve adaptor that comes with most cannondale frames (guessing the road ones I have laying around won't work) or should I use this Whee;s Manufacturing adaptor where you press an adaptor into BB30 bearings already in the shell Wheels Manufacturing - BB 30 Shims ?

    *Aluminum Flash frame

    Thanks!

    IN the alloy frame you are able to use de original Cannondale adaptor. And the adaptor for the BB30 bearings I think it is a really good idea for save some weight.

    I'm running the Wheels Mfg adapters on my 2010 Flash Alloy frame with Shimano SLX cranks. Can easily convert to a BB30 compatible crankset when the finances allow.

    That looks great jdinsj! Thanks for the info, I never see or hear about Aluminum Flash frames on MTBR but I just ordered a Aluminum frame and Lefty, the 45 gram difference on the Lefty did not seem worth the large difference in money and I'm guessing the difference in the frame is 400-600 grams (not sure). I could just sell this new XT Deore crank and buy a SRAM BB30, but I've had nothing but success with Shimano parts.

    Have you had any kind of creak or problems with this setup? I was worried about all the difference tolerances between the different parts.

    No creaks or problems. I haven't had it apart since the assembly in Feb.'10. Pretty sure there is a shim on the drive side per the mechanic at the LBS. Currently running a SRAM cassette, chain and X9 RD with the SLX crank and it shifts just fine.
