What bottom bracket?

Here's my bike:

I'm replacing the crankset, chain and cassette.

But when I search for a 68x116 bottom bracket I come up with a few different options and I'm not sure what to get. Help?

You will need the BB show on your Amazon 's page , The BBR-60 for the crank you want .

the "116mm" dimension becomes irrelevant when you switch to a hollowtech II setup.

the 116mm refers to the length of the spindle that was part of the old style BB... your new crankset has the spindle incorporated into the right side crank arm/spider...

just order a Hollowtech II bottom bracket for a 68mm wide frame.... like the one Bikeman pointed out to you.
