Will my bottom bracket cups for my Chorus cranks work on Ultra Record Cranks?

the Ultra Record are on sale for $540.00 at Competitive Cyclist. Currently I have Chorus. Can I just buy these cranks and put them on my bike?

Ultra record is not a crank.

If you meant super record, they won't work with your chorus BB cups - you'll need the matching SR cupset as well.

Record ultratorque is what the OP meant and yes you can use the same cups. Even an SR crank can use those cups. The only difference is the Chorus/Record cups have internal seals that are not needed with an SR crank. You can choose to remove them or leave them in. They pull out easily.

You can get a 2011 crank with the new improved chainrings for even less from Ribble - about $465. An SR crank is $540.
