    S-Works crank question

    Do you have to use the BB that comes with it or will it work with a standard SRAM PF30?

    PF30 is PF30. It's a standard. Both will work.

    The standard SRAM PF30 will work. BTDT. However, what I have found works best is the Wheels Manufacturing PF30 alloy BB. It has "angular contact" bearings so can survive in situ with higher side loadings than the standard bearings. Plus I find the use of an alloy shell in place of the standard plastic cups beneficial.

    For those of you with the new S-works crankset, is it SRAM compatible as it looks? IE: would a stages power meter arm be compatible?
