Is SRAM and Truvativ the same?

Truvativ. SRAM purchased Truvativ in 2004 from Micki Kozuschek, providing SRAM with a line of cranks, bottom brackets, handlebars, stems, pedals, seatposts and chain retention systems.

Can any crankset fit any bottom bracket?

In general terms, most cranksets can be fitted to a variety of bottom bracket shells, though much of this compatibility depends upon the availability of suitable hardware (see next section). Any incompatibilities that do arise are often related to the length and/or diameter of the crank axle.

Are cranksets interchangeable?

Cranksets are not always interchangeable. Every crank is designed to work with a specific bottom bracket. Even if the cranks use the same interface (octalink, square taper, or hollow tech), switching them between bike brands or even models of the same brand is hard.

What is GXP crankset?

Are GXP and hollowtech compatible?

How do I know what crankset I need?

The two most important factors are axle diameter and crank length.

  1. Axle diameter: The two common axle diameters are 19mm and 22mm, so check before you buy that your bottom bracket is compatible.
  2. Crank length: This is measured from the centre of the bottom bracket axle to the centre of the pedal axle.
