OK, so I have a query, BB30 BB and Crank, do the bearings go with/come with the crank or the frame press in cups? No idea how this stuff works.

With BB30 there are no cups - the bearings simply press into the frame - a couple of cir-clips inside the BB shell ensure they're positioned correctly.
With PF30, the bearings are held in a plastic housing that is pressed into the BB shell

sorry I mean if I were to buy some 2nd hand cranks, they would come with the bearing, or would I expect to get bearing separately.

Cool, it'll be me selling, just when they took the crank out of my cannondale and discovered it wouldn't fit in my cervelo, I have a bearing still in frame and one out, wasn't sure which was the go.
