hi, I have super six evo, cannondale (sram red ) crank.. and I have to put new bearings, I thought it was easy to remove the bearings inside the cup, but its impossible, I need to remove the cup, cause the bearings are too tight, do you have the same problem?

thanks

Were the cups installed with Loctite? Seems to be pretty common way folks are doing it these days and it takes heat to remove the bearings once installed with this stuff.

Why can't you use the same cup? A LBS wants to sell you new parts obviously, so take that with a grain of salt.
I think the SRAM PF30 assemblies are meant to be replaced as a single unit, when the bearings need to be replaced, you put new PF30 cups with included bearings. That's what the Evo manual states, haven't looked at the SRAM PF30 manual... but I think the bearings are pressed in those cups more or less permanently. This year though, Cannondale are using alloy cups instead of the SRAM composite cups with bearings in the Evo. I'm guessing the alloy cups can stay in the frame and you just change the bearings...
