What bottom bracket for a 10sp Dura ace, LS 2006 frame?

ok, so here is the deal. a friend of mine just flat out gave me nearly a whole 10 sp dura-ace group, including crankset.. but he refused to give me the bottom bracket... some friend huh.. ... so i will be replacing my Truvali sp.. crankset... but im not sure if i have a threaded or press fit BB on the frame... its a 2006-2007 litespeed Vortex. im pretty sure its a english threaded BB,, but im not sure any one know what litespeed used back in 2006? i know recently they went to the press fit on the new stuff... but i think they used a threaded BB back 2006 or so. if any one knows just what i need to order? i think i can link to the crankset i have...

DA 7800 and


Shimano Dura Ace FC-7800 Crank Set Double 170mm 53B/39B Tooth 10 Speed 024 ? CAD 179.97 - PicClick CA

BB-R60 or BB-R9100, both do the same job.

For the BB you need, it; the frame, not the crank which initially determines if you need pressfit of threaded (Press-fit wasn't common back in '06 but it should be pretty obvious if you look at your frame as to what you have), then you match the crank needed to the frame/BB you have.

Why would you need to contact a manufactuer for info about a 10 year old product, when you have it in front of you, and the info you need is clearly visible?

Someone always told me "Never be a jerk". The OP was obviously asking a legitimate question. They didn't deserve a derisive response. With that being said, the '06 Litespeed most likely has a threaded bottom bracket. I'm guessing that he has it figured out by now. Do you?

It's certain. I have an '06 LS Tuscany and it is has an English threaded bottom bracket shell.

It is really very simple.

If the bottom bracket shell has threads on the inside then it is threaded. If the bottom bracket shell does not have threads on the inside then it is press fit.

A 2007 Litespeed Vortex is likely threaded - 68 mm BSA to be exact. The photo below is an example of a 68 mm BSA shell with threads on the inside.



The Vortex was a high end machine. What happened to the original components?

As I mentioned above in 2006 Litespeed used a standard 68 mm English threaded bottom bracket shell.

I just checked their web site and they have indeed gone to PF30 bottom brackets on current models. That's unfortunate.

1. You can ID what type BB from the outside without disassembly. Threaded BB's require some sort of fitting on the outside in order to screw the cup into the shell.
2. The BB you require is dependent on the BB shell width, they crank brand/model, and the chainline.
3. You are best served using the above info to determine the answer.

Don't tell me what "should" be - either it is, it isn't, or do something about it.

If you think I'm being blunt take it as a compliment - if I thought you were too weak to handle the truth or a strong opinion I would not bother.

Please respect others by taking the time to post clearly so we can answer quickly. All lowercase and multiple typos makes for a hard read. Thanks!
