I just got a Cannondale road frame (CAAD9) with a BB30 bottom bracket and the seller included the threaded BB adapter, but it is not yet installed. I have a Dura-Ace threaded double, but it is threaded. I am considering selling the Dura-Ace on eBay and buying a compact BB30 crankset. What is your favorite compact crankset for a BB30 bottom bracket (or should I just install the adapter and keep the Dura-Ace)?

What are you doing with the rest of the build? If the rest is D-A, keep it. If you're using another group, use theirs.

Yeah, that's mostly fashion statement - but really, it is anyway.

The rest is Ultegra, so unless, I go with an adapter I can't use all Shimano. I don't care if the crank is not part of the gruppo.

I just built up my C'dale EVO & went with hollowgrams with praxis rings. My 2nd set hollowgrams, can't go wrong.

No, my Dura-Ace is the 7701 standard double crankset 53/39T for Octalink BB. I have looked at a lot of options for the BB30, but for now, I am just going to throw the BB30 to BSA threaded adapter in there with some Loctight 609, and run the Octalink bottom bracket and DA standard double crank for now.

Is the Dura-Ace cranks a compact? If so, I'd use that.

+1 on the Cannondale Hollowgrams. It's pan flat where I live so it's a standard crank until I go somewhere hilly like the Pyrenees when half an hour with the tools turns it into a compact for a fraction of the price of a second crankset.
