SHIMANO Ultegra Hollowtech FC-6700 and 105 BB cups

Postby herzog » 30 Mar 2011, 3:43pm

I've just been given an Ultegra Hollowtech FC-6700 crankset :D , and I'd like to know if I can use a set of 105 BB cups with it. Would it make any difference, other than to my wallet, if I bought the corresponding Ultegra cups?

I can find no reason why not. However I havent put it to the test, yet.

This seems to cover the issue in some detail.

Thanks for the advice Meic,

I've installed the chainset and cups; so far, everything runs smoothly.
