Costs a little more than Ultegra don't know yet if it is worth it. Certainly light and smooth after 1,000 miles.

    Comments about Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 Bottom Bracket:

    Significant upgrade to my bicycle's OEM bottom bracket. Was disappointed to learn that the Nashbar bottom bracket tool which I purchased just to remove the OEM B.B. and to install this Ultegra version, would not fit the latter even by using the included adapter ring. The description for the Nashbar Integrated Bottom Bracket Cup Bit needs to be upgraded.

      Comments about Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 Bottom Bracket:

      I have used this bottom bracket on my fixed gear test bed for components all winter here in the rainy Pacific NW. After the first 12,000 km, the bearings are still snug. In my opinion, Hollowtech II is the best, most simple bottom bracket design ever developed. No square tapers to wear out, removable with just a couple of allen keys, low cost for the simple threaded bottom bracket cups, and very durable. In fact, the Ultegra bb unit has outlasted the previous Dura Ace Hollowtech bottom bracket.

            I install a new bottom bracket every year along with a new drive train, this seems to be a big improvement.

              I just installed this BBR60 (Ultegra 6800 BB) on my 2010 TREK 1.2 and paired it with the Ultegra 6700 Crank set and am very pleased. I am only training inside due to weather in the NE but I enjoy the smoothness, the fit, the look it's a nice upgrade from my stock BB. As usual Nashbar beats all in price
