Just ordered a 2012 ASR-5 Alloy frame. A standard SRAM GXP 68/73 bottom bracket will work, right? As long as I'm asking, there's no way to make a BB30 crankset work on this frame, right? Thanks for the help!

You got it, standard 73mm threaded BB. Now way to run a BB30, GXP/external bearing will last longer anyway. If you don't have a fork yet, make sure you go 140mm.

Thanks Yacob, I'm trying to get some parts ordered before the frame shows up. I have a 110/140 Talas for it.

If anyone is interested, Competitive Cyclist has the '12 ASR5 frames for $799. I ordered mine last week for $999 and just got the $200 refunded.

Most of the parts will be coming off my current ride, all the parts I needed to buy should be in early next week. I'll post a picture once it's together.

No idea, but it never hurts to ask. All they can do is say no. The price only dropped on the frame with the standard Fox CTD shock, not the Kashima.

Frame arrived yesterday. Thursday I'm going to a friends house to install the headset then have it ready to go for the weekend. Only part I'm waiting on is the 12 x 142 thru axle conversion kit. My hubs have a 12 x 135 thru axle. Seems like the 12 x 135 was a short lived standard. I'll post a pic or two once it's all together. Looking forward to riding it.
