    Ultegra Octalink BB...or?

    Hey wrenches, need to check something with you.

    I'm building up a bike for my out-of-shape little brother with my spare parts. I've got an ultegra octalink (6500) double crankset that I'd like to use. The problem is that my octalink bottom bracket is toast. I know that I need the 68X109.5 in terms of size. I've been bidding on ebay with no luck so far.

    My question is this, are there any other bottom brackets out there that will work for me?

    Jensonusa has the 105 version of your bottom bracket for $35. It should work fine.
