Hi a Newbie here looking for a bit of advice.

I'm looking to upgrade the chainset on my Cube Peloton ( 2010 ) model.

I currently have a Shimano FC-R453 Octalink ( triple chainring) and a Shimano BB-ES 25 bottom bracket which I feel is not the best... and want to upgrade it to an Ultegra SL HollowTech II triple chainset ( with english BB cups), mainly due to the cost.

Can anyone let me know if the Ultegra will fit? or will there be compatibility problems..

Any advice would be helpful.Thanks!

  • I don't see any issue... you need both chainset and BB of course
