    Comments about Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 Bottom Bracket:

    I wore out a previous generation Ultegra bottom bracket before I wore out the chain so was disappointed with it. Saw a lot of negative comments about it online so halfway expected it. At this price I don't mind changing it at the same time I replace chains. This one appears to be better made so I have higher hopes for this one lasting longer. It was easy to put on and fixed the clicking problem I had when pedaling. The ring that comes with it is to adapt to the standard BB wrench since the outside nut on this one has a smaller diameter than the previous generation did. Can't give it a higher rating since I've only got a few hundred miles on it so far. Will take 3 years to know how well it holds up.

      Why they went to press fit astounds me. Finally went back to threaded outboard.

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 Bottom Bracket:

          I have decided to convert a classic "Mondia Criterium"
          frame bicycle from standard to compact cranks. The old
          campagolo bottom bracket removed was (35x1) neither
          Italian nor English. I called Nashbar, Performancebike,
          and Shimano. None of them had a solution. Phil Wood
          set they had such item, but out of stock. I was looking
          the removed bracket, and it looked similar to the
          Shimano BBR60. I tried the right treaded bracket and
          to my amazement it treaded into the bottom shell.
          So I went to get a second set of BBR60, and by using the right treaded bearing complited the installation.

          Comments about Shimano Ultegra SM-BBR60 Bottom Bracket:

          The bottom bracket is very nice, it's lightweight and will serve it's purpose. The tool sent with the bottom bracket is a piece of garbage. I tried to use it with my hollowtech 2 socket to torque and the inside splines, the ones that go on the bottom bracket stripped befor reaching desired torque. So be aware of this if you like to torque stuff to specs.

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

            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.
