    Re: Bottom bracket

    Have you thought about these??

    They come with the Hollowtech BB too and if you type in christmas10 in the voucher code part you could have them for 80.99 delivered (this offer end midnight tonight)

    I went from XT 770 to these and these are much nicer, read the reaveiw on the CRC link above

    Deore are a little flimsy for a big bloke.


    slx are budget bombproof, they have replaced hone and lx. Not as light as xt but great value.

    Xt are lighterweight but not as sturdy.

    Slb will tell you about xt not being quite so sturdy.


    Have a look on the shimano webby the weight info and stats are all there.

    Thought that was XTR that SLB mullered??

    Anyway, 105 hollowtech 2 is road specific, don't know if it would fit, never felt the need to try it TBH, but the dimensions regarding the BB will be the same, not sure about the axle though. Then there's the seals to consider.

    Maybe it was.. i thought it was just xt though. I'm sure that he'll chip in and confirm. Assuming he can get over the agony of reliving it.
