I've read on Argon's website that there is an adaptor that you can use to install a BB30 crankset on a standard threaded bottom bracket. I've done several searches on the internet and can only find the adaptor to convert from BB30 to threaded.

Any help? Links?

Thanks.

Can't go from standard english to BB30. The spindle on a BB30 is much shorter than a standard external BB crank. You can go from BB30 to the external BB, but not the other way.

Do you have a link to that reference?

The axle on a BB30 crankset is quite large....

I found what it says. Its worded poorly. Copied directly from Argon's website.

Bottom bracket: English type thread or BB30, using FSA threaded adaptor, not included, available from FSA.

But if you go to FSA's website, they only list this as a BB30 adapter.

BB30 SHELL ADAPTOR

This adaptor allows the use of a traditional bottom bracket assembly in a frame with a BB30 shell.

Available in 68mm and 73mm versions.
