hollowtech BB compatible with fulcrum crankset?

by blablablacksheep20   May 10, 2013  

Hi all.
Dilemma here, my fulcrum torq rs bb has gone kaput.
A friend who used to work in bike shop reckons his dura ace bb will work with my chain set?

I wasn't sure about this but I'm not lbs guy.
I'm just looking for info(if not I'll use some champ CULT BB)...

Thanks

I know you can use them but question was whether dura ace hollow tech will work...

I have fulcrum cranks and it looks to be a different system to shimano Hollowtech, so I don't think they are compatible

The above link is just to the cups only, easy to replace, but these only house the bearings. Assuming the bearings have failed then I'd recommend you get bike shop to replace bearings only.

I've got replacement bearings but I just would like to know if hollow tech would work, its the same screw type attachment system as fulcrum, so why wouldn't it?
