SI Crank to xt -- -HOW please
i've just bought a scalpel frame,
it originally came with SI crankset which has been removed
i dont want to spend that much on new crankset and just want to use xt
or possibly raceface cranks.
can anyone tell me what i need to buy and install so that my frame will accept
shimano xt or more modestly price cranksets than SI.
all feedback and help is greatly appreciated as i know bog all !!

Cannondale has adaptors that you more or less permanently install in there to allow you to install regular cranksets. It exists, not too expensive and Cannondale even use it on stock bikes with frames that are BB30 but for lower end models (Rush Carbon for exemple). Here's the Cannondale tech document...
serach on ebay, there was some adapters out there to buy last week,
and you can find some to if you serach on google.com.
