i was very interested in these so did a bit of research.there's a good chance i'm wrong but i think there are only a couple of firms making bb30 cranks at the minute and they fit cannondale frames,i think these are the only frames they will fit.it seems that they want to make bb30 the industry standard and hoping they will be taken up by more bike manufacturers.the cranks get excellent reviews and are well worth the asking price,i'd have them but they won't fit my frame.you can fit a normal crank in a bb30 shell with an adaptor but you can't fit a bb30 crank in a normal shell.that's my understanding and i hope it's mostly true but i have been known to be wrong on a quite a lot of occasions :(

That's my understanding too, though I think specialised also make frames for them, as well as more road bike manufacturers.

I may look out for a frame, as the cranks are lovely, just got nothing to mount them on.

You can use the THM-Carbones Bottom Bracket on a Standard Frame with that FSA BB30 ;)

I´ve sold my Clavicula long time so I can not confirm the diameter of the axle but they are 30mm for sure, but not sure if you wana go this way since this BB that I know that could be your answer cost almost 100 quid!! :)
