Specialized SL4 Pro Tarmac - Bottom Bracket
#1
Hi everybody,

I am in desperate need of some assistance here.

I bought a Shimano Ultegra compact crankset to be fittet on my Specialized SL4 Pro Tarmac - 2012.

I want to replace the bottom bracket as well - but my question is:

Would a Shimano Ultegra BB6700 fit my Specialized bike - or would I need some sort of adapter or something like that?

I seem to be stuck in the BB jungle and does not seem to get the right answers when I google around.

Looking forward to hear from you experts.

Thanks in advance.

You can, but you got to buy a Wheel Mfg adapter to put your Ultegra crank on a OSBB Specialized BB
