    BB mixup questions, thinking I wasted my money lol

    Ok so I just got a SRAM X0 crankset used off ebay for $130 shipped, I thought I got a steal at first BUT its BB30 and not GXP like the current BB in my bike... so I'm screwed on using this on my current bike correct?

    My bike is a 2013 Specialized Carve SL (Clampy style EBB) my question is: Can I get a kit to install a BB30 style BB on this frame? or should I just resell the thing and hope I don't loose money?

    No, you can't install a BB30 in that frame.

    Resell it. Go ride your bike.

    Since your bike has an eccentric BB somebody might make a conversion kit to put a BB30 crank in there. I know they do a kit to turn a BB30 shell into an eccentric for 24mm cranks. This would most likely keep you from being able to adjust chain slack though.

    These might work. Would lose the eccentric.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
