I have SRAM Apex Shifters, FD, RD, and Brakes.

Can I use a SRAM Force BB30 Crankset?

Thanks Paul

Yes, generally SRAM's 10 speed road parts are cross compatible between apex, rival, force, and red. Do you have a BB30 frame though? – Ritch Melton Jun 14 '13 at 19:57
Very good question... I bought my bike on CL and don't know which model it is. It definitely was changed... bc it has a combo of different components. Tiagra shifters with Sora FD and RD. I checked the archives and they didn't make a model like that. To make things more complicated. The crank is a 53/39.… This looks like the bike... but the specs say it's a triple crankset... so maybe the previous owner changed it. – Paul Mung Jun 15 '13 at 0:04

Unfortunately, you will not be able to use the BB30 on your bicycle. You will need to search for a Sram Force GXP Crankset. You will also need to verify if your particular Bianchi is Italian threaded or not as not all Bianchi are.

You are right it's GXP. Thanks for the info – Paul Mung Jun 16 '13 at 16:46
