Item arived new in the box. It's a great bb and the ride quality seems exactly the same as the Dura Ace one I have on my Ultegra crank (I'm pretty sure Dura Ace only offers a weight advantage).
After it is installed the crank does not spin free. When you try to spin the crank it will stop before a full revolution. I'm pretty sure this is just how Shimano is making their bbs now as my Dura Ace does the same (it loosened up slightly after a few rides but not much). Once you're on the bike and pedaling that friction is not noticable and the crank spins very smoothly.
I fit this on a bike I'm rebuilding with a FSA Gossamer crank. The spindle fit was tight and needed some pursuation, but then again the bb was designed for a Shimano crank. After the spindle was knocked in it rode as well as my Shimano on Shimano set up on my other bike.
Good b/b does what I want it to do, easy to put on (buy a proper tool) will see me through some bad weather this winter, goes well with the 5700 chainset I bought also, service first class from Merlin (as usual)
Great piece of kit, bought in conjunction with Shimano 105 5700 Chainset, previous set lasted 20 years.
Next day delivery, great service from Merlin.
Hard to get too excited about a new bottom bracket but this is easy to fit and no problems. Great price, packaging and delivery as always from merlin.
I upgrade from 9-speed to 10-speed, changing the triple crank to double one. That causes me to change everything. I must have spent more money, but here "Merlin" gave me good prices. Thanks so much, Merlin!! Next time again I will definitely come and buy some, I swear. I was lucky I found this nice internet shopping. Thanks.
Great product easy to fit. Speedy delivery!!
Does exactly what it says on the tin. Easy to fit and gives you a chance to clean out all the crud from your frame at the same time.
Can't go wrong for the price. I seem to go through bottom brackets quite regularly on my cyclocross bike so a cost effective option like this is ideal
