    FSA Bottom Bracket Confussion

    I'm getting ready to buy a new frame in the next couple of months and I stripped down my current HT build to make sure I could get everything off smoothly and to just give it a general bit of TLC. In doing so I managed to slip and (only slightly) damage the spline one of the BB cups.

    So I started looking into how much they cost to buy a new one and then found many different makes, models etc... but one thing that kept cropping up was that the bottom bracket will only work with certain FSA cranks, of which I own a set. However actually working out which ones are supported seems to be impossible. All I know is that I currently have a BB-7000 MegaExo but FSA also produce a BB-1000 and BB-9000, are these all cross compatible? and has anyone got any idea as to any 3rd party BB's I could use?

    Welcome to the world of FSA cranks and BB's. Somewhere on that site is a chart that shows what BB's are compatible with what crank. Chances are the only alternative will be a more expensive FSA Ceramic BB option for your crank.
