Hi Guys –
Im getting a new BH Ultralight frameset which runs the new 386EVO bottom bracket …
Im planning a build with the new DA9000 - I just want to clarify, for my own piece of mind …
The DA9000 bottom bearing …is still needed ? or do I just need adapters that the crank spindle sits in ?
I imagine the DA9000 cups as per here - http://www.wiggle.com.au/shimano-dura-a ... cket-cups/ will sit inside an adapter set as per here - http://wheelsmfg.com/386evo-adapter-for ... ranks.html
Is this correct ?
Thanks in advance
Hi mate - if thats the case ...where exactly are the bearings located ?
"im confused" ...need an exploded diagram of al the bits and pieces so i can fully understand how this all goes together/works haha!
Based on the other pics of the product (which is only a couple of adaptor rings and a handful of spacers) I would suggest you need a 386EVO BB + the adaptor. Q factor will be intersting given 386EVO is wider than BB30, FSA's 386 specific cranks have less curve on the crank arms for that exact reason. Shell is 20 odd mm wider and spindle is 15mm longer.
edit: and if you click on installation instructions on the wheels mfg link you get an exploded view

they are internal - wider frame. the site you linked to is for the 386 to PF86 adapter
the bikeradar link above suggests that PF86 for BB386 EVO is coming (i.e. no adapter required)
ok ...excellent! thanks guys -
i think ive got it ...
so - will still run a 'normal' PF BB with the relevant adapter from (as an example) here - http://www.fullspeedahead.com/category_ ... M-BRACKETS
So - if i am going to get a DA9000 group set ...the BB (italian or English) become redundant yeah ? I will need to also purchase a PF30 BB ...or other compatible DA9000 crankset BB
Sound good ?
looks like you'll have to run a PFBB30 and then the adapter. the standard BB is redundant. you can send it to me. I'll send you lots of kudos.
haha ....ill be buying the groupo piece-meal (as funds allow) ...so will just omit the BB ..sorry mate ...any recommendations on the best PFBB30 to run ?
