I have received a pair of FSA carbon cranks via eBay, the spindle is built into the drive side crank. It's a splined setup (modern by my standards).

It looks like I need external BB cups & bearings - can anyone assist? What do I need to look for and what is this setup commonly known as?

Will get pics up later...

Thanks in advance!

That's great!

So BB30 is an actual type of BB?

Bb30 (press fit) is dependant on the frame. Not the crank.

We need to know what kind of BB your frame has, and a pic. of said Crankset would be nice too.

then is the axle 24mm or 30mm dia ? as besides BB30 you have PF30, BSA which need spacers & there is also BB386 as its seems all these different BB set ups has really confused the whole bike world these days with all the different options abounding on bikes these days.
