I need to replace my 105 chainset, I've seen Ultegra versions for reasonable prices but would they slip straight into my 5700BB?

Thanks

    Why not just replace the rings? Or have you done some damage to the cranks?

    Yes, all Shimano HT2 road chainsets and BB's are interchangeable.

    My winter bike has an Ultegra BB and it's run a 105 5603 triple chainset, a 9 speed Tiagra double, and now a CX-50 46/36 chainset.

    Similarly the Shimano pressfit BB on the summer bike has run the triple and the double.

    That for me is a major benefit of HT2; you can just whip out the chainset in seconds.

    Can I ask why the entire chainset needs replacing? Are you wanting to move from a standard double to a compact (or the reverse)? Or is it damaged in some way?

    If it is a HT II external type SM-BB5700 bottom bracket, then yes the Ultegra Chainset will be a straight swop.

    Perfect thanks all. No damage to the cranks just wear and tear, thought might as well swap the lot and slight upgrade at same time. Thanks again.
