i'm thinking of getting the new Cervelo r3 Disc but the only thing I don't like about the bike is the Shimano group set and the FSA SLK light crankset. I would like to swap the whole group set for full SRAM Red 22 hydro with a Quarq power meter.

Given the R3 disc included FSA crankset has a 5MM offset (2.5mm on each side) to accommodate the proper chain line at 405mm chainstays, is a swap for SRAM still possible? Does the offset meaning I need to find a crank spindle that is 5mm longer and long enough to accommodate the offset? Which SRAM Red or Quarq crankset version should I be getting? GXP?

Do I need to get a new bottom bracket to replace the BB386EVO too?

Also if anyone has done such conversion, anyone had issues with 52-11 (big-small) and 36-28 (small-big) type of cross chaining grinding on the front derailleur?


Or is a conversion simple not possible and would I really be stuck with the FSA SLK crankset?

Easiest answer is to buy a proper R3 road frame (none of this disc shyte), plus an Enduro Torqtite BB to convert BBright to the cranks you want to use, and put whatever damn components on it you want.
Not interested in buying the rim brake R3. Thanks, but no thanks for your non-information.
