Race Face BB / Shimano or Campy crankset(2 posts)

I have a Race FAce BB and currently have the race face CX crankset on my 'cross bike. Does anyone know if I can go to either Shimano or Campy Crankset on this bike without changing the bottom bracket?

I want to go to bigger rings and can't do it with the race face set-up, largest Race Fce ring I can find that will fit is 48 teeth and I would like to be able to go bigger rings when doing road training.

If the crank uses the race face spline pattern,it is only ISIS spline comaptible.If the crank is square taper,it is shimano (JIS taper) compatible,but you still might need a different BB spindle length to match the cranks you would put on.What BCD and bolt pattern do you have anyway.You do not necessarily have to stick with RF rings.
