I'm about to order the Boardman 9.8 frameset. It comes with a BB30 and I would like to either put D-A mechanical or Ultegra Di kit on it (mainly due to finding the hoods most comfortable for my hands). However I'm looking for advice on what to do about the crank. Shimano doesn't do a BB30 and there seems to be a lot of problems with adapters? My default idea was going to be to get an FSA K-Force Light crank as they are 70% off at chainreactioncycles at the moment (or perhaps a 2012 Sram red black crank - the bike will be black). Any thoughts? Any experience of FSA? Or experience of SRAM cranks with a shimano front dérailleur?
