I'm considering changing my Ultegra 53/39 crankset to a compact and have been looking at the various options and I'm currently undecided between the Ultegra 6750 (£165ish from crc) and the Rotor 3DF (£195 from Planet X)

I understand that the gains from crankset are marginal but as I'm already spending the money to change to a compact which would be the better option and is the rotor version worth the additional £30?

My bike is non bb30

Thanks

    Yes it is worth the £30, but thought they'd sold out

    edit- just checked, 23 in stock
  • No still showing in stock.

    I assume they should be compatible with my bike (kuota kebel with english thread bb) especially as it comes with its own bb without any other adaptors?

    Ultegra compact crank sets are £118.75 at Merlin with an Ultegra bottom bracket. Only 172.5 left in stock. I got one a couple of weeks ago, very easy to fit and super happy with my purchase.

    Many thanks for the heads up. Good price
