theres a used 105 5500 in the classifieds. Should do fine. I have the 6500 one which does the job.

You may already know this, but if not be aware there are two versions of Octalink. With the older road version e.g. the 5500 chainset I am not sure if the bottom brackest are still available?

Yep its defo around. I am looking to replace mine as its creaky. Between 20-30 for a new BB. Pretty sure all the usual online stockists have one. Look for 5500 bottom bracket as that's the only one widely available. I think CRC or CS have a 7700 one, but waste of money imo
