Bottom bracket question

Postby TanukiRider » Wed May 22, 2013 09:58 am

Hi all,

Im in the process of buying a new Scott Addict frame, which is press fit BB86. I have a shiny new Ultegra drivetrain to install (6700) but Im struggling to find a compatible bottom bracket. The more I read, the more confused I become!!

My Scott CR1 I have now has a threaded bottom bracket, which is a sight easier to change myself. Are there any adapters that allow you to fit threaded cups to a BB86?

Sorry if this ha been done to death, but, Im strugling to find the info I need :?

thanks all,
TR

Brilliant, thanks! Full ceramics are a tad pricey, but the hybrids look good. Order going in! :)
