I am shopping for a h/t 29r and i'm almost settled on the D29 Pro. My question is regarding the bottom bracket. It is listed as a PF30 bb, and I'm familiar (only after much research) with that setup and how it differs from the bb30 and bb92, etc. The issue is that this bike comes equipped with a Shimano SLX 3x10 crank, which is only available in the standard size (either standard outboard bb or bb92 compatible). It is my understanding that Shimano only makes one crank spindle size. Since the pf30 uses a different spindle diameter and length than the standards, are they stocking this full carbon bike with some type of problem sovers adapter? I cannot find the info on their site.
The reason I'm asking is because that is the one component I would want to upgrade right away - I would want to swap it to a 2x10 crank and I'm not sure if I would need a pf30 crank or if I could interchange it with a standard shimano crank?
