I love burritos.
Anyone know the weight of Shimano's R700 compact crankset with Ultegra BB cups?
FlyingYeti said:I forgot the exact figure, but I was actually surprised to find out that a R700 Compact crankset was about 100g heavier than Ultegra 53/39. R700 has the shape of DuraAce with more metal area, and this might contribute to the added weight.
I just want to let everyone know that I took the plunge two weeks ago and ordered the crankset anyway. Since I was coming from an Ultegra 6600, I just left the Ultegra BB on and weighed the cranksets by themselves.FlyingYeti said:Okay, I was wrong, but not by much. Here's the weight info as published in the Competitive Cyclist's website.
Shimano R700 Compact = 850 g
Shimano Ultegra Double = 833 g
Shimano DuraAce Double = 640 g
I guess 17g heavier weight by going from Ultegra to Compact is not going to kill me.
