New SRAM® Apex is the perfect blend of technology and performance, so all riders can challenge their personal limits. SRAM® Apex has double chainrings, which are simpler, lighter, faster, and in every way, just better than a triple. And with a gear range that's wider, making climbing easier and descending faster, why would you ever go back to three?
Your chainset must fit onto your bottom bracket! There are currently four chainset/bottom bracket interfaces that you're likely to come across. If your bottom bracket is made by Shimano and it has splines, then you need an Octalink chainset. If your b/b is NOT made by Shimano and it has splines, it's almost certainly ISIS. There are a very few non-Shimano chainsets with Shimano Octalink interfaces so, to be sure, count the splines - ISIS has 9, Octalink has (surprise, surprise) 8. No matter which brand of b/b you have, if it has a square interface, it will require a traditional square taper chainset. If you have one of the new Hollowtech II systems, you will need to choose the exact chainset that matches your bottom bracket. Most MTB chainsets are now 9-speed compatible but these will work with an 8-speed system.

Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
Is BB included? If so how can I choose BB type?
I am looking at replacing it with the Sram compact crank. Will it fit and will i need a new bb and/or extra special Sram tools to fit it?
I'm looking to swap my standard for a compact crank for Sportives and think it is worth keeping to the same brand.
How many components are similar for these cranks? What tools will I need?
Will I need to move my front derailleur for the smaller chainrings?
Can I just but a smaller chainring for my companct crank? (anything less than 39).
