Chris King
#1
I am building my dream bike and I want to put a Chris King bottom bracket in it. It is just very hard to figure out which one is the right one. I plan on getting a Sram DUB crankset because it has the look I´m going for, with a decent price tag. I have a Cinelli Vigorell disc frame. I believe that in order to put the DUB crankset on I would need the King Threadfit 30. I don't know what the different sizes are for BB width and whatnot, I cannot find much on the website.
The frame takes a BSA 68mm BB so, at first glance, the King Threadfit 24 BB would be the correct one, does the 24 and 30 have the same outer diameter, and would it still fit it?

Also if anyone has any crank recommendations for a decent price I would be happy t hear them, I´m mainly looking for one with a center lock chainring.
Thanks yall

Hi Chase,

Glad to see you were able to decide on a frame; I'd have been no help there. I would also like to see what BB recommendations you get. I'm building up a 2011 Gios frame with modern parts and will need some guidance there. As far as newer cranks, my only experience is with the Campy "Ultra Torque" system. Works fine for me as a smaller rider who uses higher gears primarily. Unfortunately, I have yet to get that bike fitted with those cranks into the hills where heavy climbing is involved. I live in Florida, my biggest climb: 125 ft.
Take care,
Jesper
