    Octalink compatibility

    I recently pickup a shimano sora 8-speed triple crank set and the paperwork says to use
    BB-ES30 (118mm)(68mm thread) bottom bracket. My question are as follows: is this BB consider a V2 octalink? if so, are there other V2 BB that are be a better quality choices available(given the correct width and threading)?

    Sora 3304 uses V2.

    There is no better Octalink BB than Shimano and Sora ES30 is fine, but any other V2 BB of the same dimensions will work.
