I know nothing about BB30, help educate me please.

Will it fit a conventional threaded BB shell?? do I need anything special to run it on a 'normal' frame..?

Any info gratefully received.. I'm stoopid when it comes to the modern stuff..

It is a new standard, that uses press in cups - so will not fit a standard frame.

It's not the only standard, but is a new standard (as contradictory as this seems), the same way say ISIS axles were etc, and all the headset 'standards'. Depends how you define it!

Being free to use by all though, is very likely will be the prominent method we see.
