Ultegra FC-6700 left crank

Im going to lose my Ultegra FC-6700 175mm left side crank for two weeks.
Ive heard this will make the bike hard to ride.

What are my options for a temporary replacement?
Is there a Dura Ace part I should be looking for as well as the Ultegra 6700?


Thanks

Barry

It deserves some time off.
And, it's going to get a power meter installed.

I just hope the meter reads all the way down to my wattage!

Any Shimano road HT2 crank arm of the same length will do, if you haven't bought already, would really question why upgrade a 6700 crank to power, the 6700 is a very old design, and if you need rings, the outer specifically (which if you do any good amount of riding, you probably will have now), it's more cost-effective to get a new chainset.

and this is why I come here....... thank you Jim.

I have been looking at buying a 6700 left side arm at $100
A complete new R8000, both sides is only $230.
It gets better.... the PM is $300 if it comes on an R8000 left arm, or the same price to mount it on your arm.

In summary
For an additional $130, I get a new R8000 drive side crankset, a spare non drive side crank, and no two week wait.

Thank you Jim

Barry

Edit: Looks like the R8000 has changed the chainline from the 6700. Looks like this may not work. More research required.
