Ceramic Octalink V1 Bottom Bracket, 68 x 109.5
Dura-Ace and SRM track crankset users rejoice! We are now able to sell you a new Shimano Dura-Ace 7710 track bottom bracket that has had the bearings replaced with Enduro ceramic. We are also able to convert a bottom bracket you may already own as well.
Compatible Shimano Octalink V1 models:
- 105 - 5500
- Ultegra - 6500
- Dura-Ace - 7710
There are a few options in how we can convert your BB to ceramic bearings.
- With dust seals only and Finish Line Teflon grease - This still gives you a relatively durable BB but not quite as fast as it would be with oil. The lip seals are removed on this option so it is not a good option for riding where you will be dealing with wet conditions. This is a good option for big events where you do not want to mess with your BB for the weekend but it is still recommended this be for race use only as it will not be as durable as they are stock.
- Without dust seals and lubricated with oil - This is the fastest option although most maintenance heavy. We leave the dust seals off so you can easily drip more oil into the bearings as needed. We recommend re-applying oil before each use but this is easily done with the straw that comes with the bottle of most oils like Tri-Flow. This is definitely a race specific set up and pretty maintenance heavy although it is the fastest set up you can run with Dura-Ace cranks.
New 7710 bottom brackets usually ship within a day or two but lead times to convert your existing bottom bracket vary quite a bit by season. I will do my best to provide an accurate turn around time when you place your order.
I am happy to ship internationally but you will need to cover additional shipping charges, just send me an email with exactly what you want and I will get it going for you.
Feel free to reach out by email or phone if you have any questions at all.
