    BB Adapter Kit

    Looking for some feedback on anyone who has adapted a PF30 BB to fit a Hollowtech II Shimano crankset.

    What do you recommend?

    I have had 2 bikes with a SRAM PF30 to BSA adapter. It worked as it should.

    I used a Praxis conversion bb to install a sram gxp crankset and it's been perfect for over a year now. They make one for Shimano too, highly recommended.

    Not MTB related, but had a friend who rides road and had gotten a new road bike and wanted to turn the old one into a TT bike, she ordered up new Shimano drivetrain before consulting me and had a PF30 BB. I gave her 2 options, buy the press in adapters, that the Shimano cups just screw into for about $30 or buy the threaded PF30BB adapter with bearings etc from Real World. She ordered both as the adapters cups were cheap and agreed to give them a go first and we could always swap out to the "fancier" one later if they gave any trouble. Reports so far are they are working well, no creaking or other issues. Personally though if it were me I'd prob use the threaded ones from Real World or such.
    One day your life will flash before your eyes, will it be worth watching??
