The silent advantage

The new Shimano Dura-Ace SM-BB9000 Bottom Bracket continues the Shimano tradition of the outboard bearing, and like the whole 9000 group set, it's lighter, stronger, and faster than previous iterations. If this is your first endeavor with Dura-Ace, you should know that Shimano has long been the pioneer of external bottom brackets. In fact, its outside bearing positioning has proved to be so beneficial that Shimano adapted the same principles to its wheels. The efficiency of the system can be credited to its wide bearing stance. This distributes weight more evenly, and thus enhances stability and power transfer.

With the new Dura-Ace generation, you'll find that Shimano decreased the SM-BB9000 bearing size for a stellar weight reduction over 7900. This alone enabled the bottom bracket to decrease bearing friction, but the most notable benefit comes from BB9000's new seals. The new sealing system results in a 50% reduction in drag without compromising bearing protection. Less weight, smoother bearings, and increased longevity -- purely Dura-Ace.

The Shimano Dura-Ace SM-BB9000 Bottom Bracket is available in the color Black and in English (68mm) and Italian (70mm) threading.

can I use this bottom bracket with a FSA K-Force Light BB386 EVO 10sp Crankset? If not which one do I need? thanks.

Unanswered Question

I am trying to build a CX bike for commuting and racing a bit in cyclocross. I would want to fit this with a Shimano 105 CX 50 crankset. Does anybody have any idea if it will fit? If not any suggestions?

Will this work with a DA-7900 Crankset on a 2012 Cervelo P3?

Best Answer Responded on

Hello,

Yes this will absolutely work with a shimano dura ace crank on the Cervelo p3. I worked with cervelo for quite some time. I had an S5 personally and it was crazy fast. Good luck and have fun!

Unanswered Question

I am looking to build my first bike (scary prospect). I have a shimano 9000 set available. When I purchase a frame what brackets are compatible. I see bb30s, 86s, 68, and fsa. Which should I get?
Thanks in advance.

If I purchase a 52/36 172.5 Dura Ace 9000 crank would I go for English or Italian? I ride a Felt AR.

What's the difference?

Michael ,

I saw an answer that this BB is compatible with 7800 crankset. Therefore, it is ok to use with 7900 crankset. Please confirm. Thanks.

Responded on

Yes, That will be fine. The bearings changed to decrease resistance, but the fit and the internal diameter is the same.

I have a FSA MegaEXO BB 70/68, M36x24T Bottom Bracket with 24mm shafts. Will the DuraAce SM-BB9000 replace the FSA?

Responded on

Its possible they could work, but FSA cranks should use FSA BB and Shimano to Shimano. FSA is on the high end of the 24mm tolerances and Shimano is on the low end so usually there are some fit issues.

Steve,

The Crank should be compatible with the Shimano BB as most FSA crank shafts are 24mm and Shimano Axles are 24mm so it should fit right up. Just insure you do not have a 30 mm axle shaft which is on BB30 cranks and PF30 cranks. I hope this helps contact me at ececala@backcountry.com if you have any other questions.

Thanks,
Enrico

Technically they should work, but thats often not the case.

will this be compatible with an ultegra 6750 crankset? also, it is a better bb than the bbr60/bb6800?

Responded on

Yes this is comparable with the Ultegra 6750 crank. The bearings tend to be better on the top shelf Dura Ace products than the rest of the line. If you have any additional questions, please contact me at jcrocker@backcountry.com.

Cheers,
Jaron

Hi,

The internal dimensions of the bottom bracket are unchanged between Dura Ace 7800 And the current 9000 version. Your Crankset will fit.

I currently ride a Dura Ace BB 7400, 70 (Italian) with 113mm spindle. Do I need a longer spindle to ride with the Dura Ace BB9000 BB?

Responded on

the BB9000 is an external bottom bracket, while the BB 7400 was square tapered spindle style bottom bracket. The BB9000 will not be compatible with the 7400 crankset. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. brett@competitivecyclist.com

would this be compatible with a shimano 105 from 2 years ago?

Responded on

Yes, the more recent 105 cranks use an external bottom bracket, which is compatible with the BB9000 bottom bracket. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. brett@competitivecyclist.com
