    Swapping Sram S2200 cranks vs. S-Works Carbon Cranks - question

    Hi, i want to change the Sram S2200 crankset of my wife`s epic expert to a s-works carbon crankset. Do i have to change the PF30 bearings and cups as well? Or do i just have to insert cranks with spacers and thats it? Thanks.

    I've not donethe change myself, but the bearings and cups will stay. The issue will be getting the spacers and seals right for the Epic. I assume you have the Spec documents on the SW crank?

    My LBS gave me all spacers they usually use for fitting s-works cranks to an epic so that shouldnt be a problem. They also told me that i most probably would have to change cups and bearings. I just want to confirm this in order to avoid work/efforts which is not necessary. They were not sure about that.

    Have you definitely got all the spacers listed in this manual?

    Have a look at the posts from #162 onwards in this thread too:

    Epic S-Works 2013

    thegallery was swapping in the opposite direction (S-Works carbon crank to XX1 BB30 cranks) and had some issues.

    I did the same thing on my SJ Expert Carbon 29. No need to change out bearings or cups. You're bike shop is shady.

    No, as you already have the PF30 cups & bearings, you will be fine. I'd probably change the bearings as a matter of course while you have the crank out - but if they don't feel notchy, don't worry...
