Easy to install and great value.
When you need to replace your Shimano PF Bottom Bracket on a road bike...this is what you need. Easy to fit .
Excellent BB for the money. Used these many times with no issues.
I was a little concerned about using a press fit BB but the frame I had ordered needed just that. Found out what I could before fitting and the BB went in no problem and to date hasn't caused any problems.
BB replacement on a TT bike, for a friend. Did the job a treat, and no further problems reported.
Perfect replacement BB for my Ultegra 6800 crankset, runs smoothly. A great value BB.
Good vaue for money and very easy to change with the correct tools. There was nothing wrong with the previous part, it was just changed as a precaution when upgrading the crankset.
Easy to install and works well.
Cannot notice any difference between it an the dura ace model.
As you would expect with a Shimano product, it fits easily if you use the correct tool and does what it is intended to do i.e. in this case roll smoothly. Last bottom bracket lasted for years. Only replaced this one as water had got in the inside of the frame and sloshed about in the bearings for a while causing damage.
The centre pipe section is usually a problem when fitting and I normally bin it. Apart from that they fit easily using a headset press. They survive 5-months of cyclo-cross training and racing OK before being replaced.
Bought this as a replacement unit for my Scott Foil. Old unit was only 2 years old but seen around 3500 miles. Bike feels brand new again with this unit which certainly feels smooth.
Very straight forward to fit and spins smoothly.
The Shimano bottom bracket is a big improvement over the stock FSA bottom bracket that came on my bike. It spins better and feels much more solid.
One of the best PF for road bike. You have be certain about the size you need before ordering.
Not too difficult to fit with the right tool but a real pain to align without it. Otherwise feels like every other high end shimano bottom bracket
Great. It just works. Got 4000 miles out of the last one, and only changed it out because I was rebuilding the bike.
Simple replacement for factory fitted giant defy bb (providing you have the tools). A great price too. The inner sleeve can be a bit awkward to line up but patience is the key here. As usual excellent service from Merlin
