BB86 cranks, best light option

Postby Knut » Fri Sep 30, 2011 8:53 pm

Gentlemen,

It's been a while... Hope everything is well in the FWB community?

Out of nescessity I'll have to replace my Zipp 300 cranks with something BB86 compatible, so what are my options for something in the same coolness and weight range?
Just get out and ride!

You don't have that many options. Of course Shimano HT2, FSA MegaExo, Sram GXP and Campagnolo UT cranks will work. These cranks are reliable (and the bearings), but not really cool and light.
With THM and also for example Lightning is the problem the bearings have to be very small. And small bearings don't last a long time.

The THM Clavicula M3 must be among the coolest and lightest BB86 compatible cranks.

Then there are always the new Tune Smartfoots.

Not sure about the EE compatibility and availability.
