Truvativ BB30 to BSA Adaptor Kit 2012
This adapter and a bit of elbow grease will convert a frame's BB30 bottom bracket shell into a standard, English threaded bottom bracket.
As the BB30 bottom bracket standard is universal, this adapter will work on any style of frame with a BB30 bottom bracket. Mountain, road or whatever it doesn't matter. A BB30 bottom bracket is a BB30 bottom bracket.
This kit includes the adapter, retaining compound (aka Loctite) and the adapter sleeve installation tools. Installation requires the use of a Park Tool HHP-2 headset press or equivalent device. Installing one of these is a best done by someone who holds a 2nd degree black belt in bicycle mechanics so we strongly suggest leaving this job to a trained professional.
Once inserted, the retaining compound needs 24 hours to cure before it's safe to install a crank. From there, this adapter is good to go. No maintenance is required and it won't loosen up or creak.Please note: If your frame's bottom bracket shell is carbon fiber, installation of this adapter is permanent. It cannot be removed. However, removal is possible on frames with alloy bottom bracket shells be it a bonded insert in carbon frame or any non-carbon frame.
