    Hi guys and girls,

    Quick question - do any of you know if outboard bearing BBs from different manufacturers are interchangable?

    Reason being, a mate's given me a used Truvativ Rouler compact crankset, but I am having trouble finding an English threaded GXP BB, and was wondeirng whether I could substitute the GXP with a Shimano Ultegra/105 BB. If not Shimano, then any others?

    I do know that some of FSA's external BB's are fully interchangable with Shimano ones, which is the reason for the question.

    Ta in advance,

    n
