Excellent quality as always with Shimano products. Excellent and fast shipping to the USA as always when I purchase with Merlin.
Great upgrade from previous BB-RS500, smooth, light and great price from Merlin...
Bought to go with new Shimano chainset bought at same time. Easy to fit and cheap enough to replace when it wears out. Feels very smooth compared to the unreliable FSA Mega Exo it replaced.
Fit and forget item, last one did me 2 wet and salty winters. Bought a metal Parktool for fitting/removal as the plastic adapter that used to come with these (this one didnt) is useless even though I had greased the threads.
Smoother and lighter than the previous generation of BB. Great price, too.
A well made BB that seems to just keep working at a good price. I have another of these that has now done well over 10,000km and it is still as smooth as the day it was bought.
Excellent price for a no nonsense BB.
Does the job and incredibly easy to install. Recommended.
Great bottom bracket and super easy to install.
OK product, I have to change mine about 8-10k
Love this bottom bracket as it is real smooth and long lasting. Replaced my old unit (not sure, but think Tiagra BB) with this and as previous units on other bikes it runs really smooth. Highly recommend.
It is definitely better than tiagra bottom bracket.! It is smooth and has more life span.
Lighter and better quality than 5800. Great price at Merlin.
Its a BB, a good one, simple to install, do the job
Not a lot to say, its a bottom bracket, but good quality at a very good price. Only downside was my spanner was for the older version which has a larger diameter. Turns out you need a plastic spacer to convert it so no big problems.
This is the best BB value on the market, hands down.
Seems to do what I need it to. Installs easily enough, just seems a little "cheap" given it's predominantly plastic. We'll just have to see how long it lasts!
A little stiff out of the box but these are the best bottom brackets out there. Great sealing from dirt/grime/water which is #1 in my book.
Good BBs at a great price. Can't go wrong! (well, you can, but so long as you hand tighten until the final bit, then you cannot go wrong!)
I think I may have found the perfect bottom bracket - well at least the best for the price. I have tried Tiagra (they are made of cheese), 105 (good), Dura Ace (very good but pricey). These BBR60 seem to be at the right price and go forever. You do need an adapter for your standard bb removal tool. This is sometimes sent with the bb but most often not. Otherwise, it is smooth and silky and lovely
Runs smooth and my previous one lasted over a year in all weathers and seasons - all you need!
Hollowtech BB's seem not to last well - not surprising given there is very little material to resist side forces but 6800 does better than most.
Seems OK so far, replaced a bottom of the BB that came with Sora crankset and is definitely slicker. Looking promising to give many more miles of smooth operation. Remember you will need the FC-TL25 tool to fit this as the BBR60 cups are smaller than the standard Shimano Hollowtech 2 cups that are standard.
The quality of Shimano never ceases to impress and delivered in good time too...
Excellent bottom bracket, installed in minutes and works like a dream. Smooth as silk!
Have this bottom bracket on my winter bike still on it with no issues. First rate quality and durability.
Excellent quality bearing at a very good price, for those lucky enough to still have BSA threads.
Been using for a few weeks now, runs smooth and quiet.
Much smoother than the Ultegra BB 6600 which it replaced. Also like the black colour and smaller cup size.
I cannot provide an accurate review of the exact product I received because it has not been installed. I can say the same model Ultegra bottom bracket is installed on my 2006 Trek Madone frame set and has about 1,000 miles and is turning like it did when installed, possibly even smoother. It seems to be well shielded against the corrosive salts in sweat and the road grit from the occasional ride in a very light rain. This item will replace the BB installed if and when it wears out.
Good product and decent price. Solved my squeaky bike issue and now feels super smooth when pedalling. Very happy with it so far.
Smooth, cheap, easy to install.
Relatively easy to fit though the adapter tool may not fit the park bb9 tool that well....especially if it's worn
Really smooth bearings made a big difference to my old BB which I seemed to be fighting against. Very quick delivery too.
Bought this as an upgrade to the Tiagra model (which may be made of camembert) - so far it's been rock solid but it does only have 120km on it (of 100kg idiot)
Bought this bracket as a replacement for my 6700 works a treat even came with tool fitting adaptor . Turns out it was the bracket and not my knees that was creaking.
Good value BB which I keep as a spare. First one lasted 4,500 miles in all weathers.
Does everything that I could ask for a bottom bracket to do. No complaints and super easy installation.
Great BB, durability shouldn't be a problem but only just started using it. Shimano quality as always is second to none.
The unit was easy to install and operates smoothly and silently.
It was easy to install, and it's very smooth. These last for ages.
Amazing value. Buttery smooth BB.
Great delivery/price and easy to fit. Comes with adaptor to fit standard spanner.
