The Problem Solvers BB30/PressFit 30 Adapter Kit allows you to use your old mountain cranks (external bottom bracket cranksets with 24mm spindles, such as Shimano Hollowtech II, FSA MegaExo and Race Face X-Type) with BB30 and PressFit 30 bottom brackets. For GXP systems, use the GXP spindle spacer kit (CR0097), sold separately.

WARNING: Read these instructions completely before beginning installation of this product. If you lack the knowledge or tools to perform installation, please have your local professional bicycle mechanic perform the installation. Improper installation can result in loss of control or damage to the bicycle and/or serious injury or death to the rider.
