    BSA to BB30 worth the hassle?

    Picked up some 165mm XO carbon cranks for the kids bike. But of course they're PF BB30. Is it worth the time and effort to try and fit these in a 73mm BSA frame? Did search the bottom bracket threads but couldn't find anything that covers this situation, so apologies if I'm bringing up old news.
