    Overend's Rockhopper with BB30 using a Zipp BB?

    This may have been posted already but I couldn't find it. CyclingNews had an article about Ned's Rockhopper SL SS. He was running a Zipp BB with the Sworks carbon crank that is OSBB or BB30. They say it is the Vuka Quad BB but I couldn't find any such thing, only Vuma Quad. The Vuma Quad is a 30mm spindle and uses a standard English BB.

    Anyone have any knowledge of how this works? I have been told by several companies that this will not work but here is photographic evidence.

    Factory team bike. The crank could be a one-off/prototype part. R&D is part of Overend's job.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Vuka Quad was a typo.
    It is Vuma Quad.
