became intrigued with the BB30 standard while considering different chainring/crankset options for my 'cross bike and noticed that FSA now has an aftermarket bb30 crankset available for ~$300 (US). as far as i could tell, cannondale's the only game in town and they're only selling complete bikes. but honestly, thirty-five hundred for an alloy frame with equipe wheels? it looks like the way to go (if one feels a stong need to have a 'cross bike with bb30 for 2009) is with the cyclocross 5 for $1700. but there's still gonna be alotta parts left over after getting the bike properly spec'd out.

The RX1 from Raleigh is BB30 and comes with the FSA Gossamer crank. Really nice frame and fork (EC90X), and comes with useable parts for not much $$.

I can't find anything that specifically mentions this on their website right now, but I believe the Van Dessel cross bikes are BB30 now. At least the Gin & Trombones is available with a BB30 shell.

Does that include you? Any particular reason why?
no, not me. just got a ridley for the 2009 'cross season and we are still in the honeymoon phase of our relationship. maybe in a coupla years.
the bb30 is intriguing from a technological standpoint. i have a 24mm from front hub on my mountain bike and that looks big.
