    What is your favorite compact crankset for a BB30 bottom bracket?

    I just got a Cannondale frame (CAAD9) with a BB30 bottom bracket and the seller included the threaded BB adapter, but it is not yet installed. I have a Dura-Ace threaded double, but it is threaded. I am considering selling the Dura-Ace on eBay and buying a compact BB30 crankset. What is your favorite compact crankset for a BB30 bottom bracket (or should I just install the adapter and keep the Dura-Ace)?

    Since it's a Cannondale a Hollowgram crank would be nice but very expensive. Another safe bet for all round quality would be SRAM.

    Is the Dura-Ace cranks a compact? If so, I'd use that.

    no, my Dura-Ace is the 7701 standard double crankset 53/39T for Octalink BB. I have looked at a lot of options for the BB30, but for now, I am just going to throw the BB30 to BSA threaded adapter in there with some Loctight 609, and run the Octalink bottom bracket and DA standard double crank for now.

    Hands down the FSA SLK Light. Light weight , strong and looks good too. Now if money wasn't an object hollowgrams would be my choice
