If an alternative is offered, also add the assembly instructions.

- Dirk, 4 June, 2024

Mantel indicated that there is an alternative for the crank. after delivery, it is not clear whether shims need to be used. after some measuring anyway, used one shim on each side to arrive at the correct size.

If there is play in the crank, these bearings are a good replacement and not expensive

- Gerrit, 21 April, 2024

Pedalling is noiseless again. I did have a tick in the left pedal after fitting it. With the old broken bearings I had a big tick in the right pedal, but fortunately this was due to the 2 socket-head screws in the pedal being too tight.

Pros & Cons

Can also be collected from the shop (no shipping costs)
Easy to assemble
In stock
Play-free pedalling again
Reasonably priced
Special tools are required.

Very good experience with this order.

- Rémi, 19 February, 2024

Perfect as a replacement for the SMBB6700. Please note that the spanner used to dismantle the SMBB6700 is a hollotech II (44 mm diameter). To reassemble the SMBBR60 you need the appropriate spanner (41 mm diameter).

Fine Bottom bracket, annoying though that it requires another special wrench. I thought it could be tightened with a standard bottom bracket wrench.

Fine thing but too bad about the special key.

- Michel, 25 June, 2021

My crankset is spinning smoothly again. Unfortunately, this does not fit the standard mounting wrench and you have to get expensive new ones that only fit the Ultegra BB.

Top service !!!!

- Guy, 19 May, 2021

I tried to find this box in 2 bike stores: impossible to help you before 4 months... Out of stock. At Mantel, it was delivered in 2 days with, as a free BONUS, an adapter for the key since the outside diameter is smaller: well done and thank you!

Once you have the right keys, assembling this threaded BB is very simple. You do have to be careful that the plastic spacer is secure when mounting that it doesn't shoot off.

Thin & light

- Tom, 19 February, 2021

Compared to a 5600 bottom bracket a lot lighter 89 grams vs. 100 grams and also a lot "thinner" this requires an adapter for mounting but that is also nicely included, it is plastic but looks like it can last quite a long time. The only drawback is the color it is only available in black and not in silver/gray.

i was a little wary of ordering from Mantel as had never even heard of them before. i need not have worried as service was excellent and delivery superfast. I will definitely be ordering from them again!
