Shimano 105 BB-5500 Bottom Bracket

Shimano 105 BB-5500 Bottom Bracket

As a direct descendent of Dura-Ace, no other road component group provides the same cost-performance value as Shimano 105.

The Octalink V1 8-spline interface between the BB and crank arm forms a strong highly rigid connection that reduces weight and increases strength.

Shimano 105 BB-5500 Bottom Bracket Specifications

  • Material: Hollow chromoly splined spindle with alloy non-drive side cup
  • Weight: 250g
  • Compatibility: V-1, 8 spline spindle for Shimano road cranks only
  • Two Sizes: 109.5 Spindle for double cranks; 118 for triple cranks

Note: crank arm fixing bolts not included.

Good replacement
Typical good Shimano quality at a reasonable price. Used this to replace a worn out BB for my old Dura ace 7700 9spd cranks.

Road 105 grade Octalink BB
Recently Octalink isn't for the race, but 105 grade BB is still produced. Not so expensive as Dura Ace, not so fragile as BB-ES300 with plastic left cup, this is a good choice. Made in Indonesia, Shimano quality.

PROS: Durable

works for me
Stock bottom bracket on my 2002 Trek 520 touring bike which I bought used. I've put about five or six thousand miles on the bb now without any signs of bearing failure. I have no idea how many miles the original owner put on the bb. While it doesn't have the advantage of a Hollowtech2 system (replaceable bearings) it does have better seals than an outboard style bearing would. The downside to Octalink is that while the spindle is larger than square taper (for increased stiffness) this also requires that the bearings be smaller due to space constraints which theoretically results in shorter bearing life. Not sure what is inside the cartridge (I've read that it's needle bearings) but I've been perfectly happy with the longevity of the product. For the other poster, the reported early failure must be due to riding style or possibly some other issue.

PROS: Innovated Design, Good Crank Arm Engagement, Spindle Size Stiffness, Durable, Attractive Design, Innovative Design

CONS: Limited Stock, Relatively Small Bearings, Obsolete, Non Serviceable Bearings

V-1 Spline works with my Ultegra crank
Needed to replace my Ultegra BB and finding those are like looking for unicorns. The 105 is just a tiny bit heavier ( about 1/2 glass of beer at most ). It seems to be a little rougher than the Ultegra, but maybe it just needs some miles to wear in.

PROS: Worked With My Ultegra

CONS: Slightly Rough

BEST USES: Replacement Bb, Road Biking
