    Is Dura-Ace crank compatible with Ultegra bottom bracket?

    A buddy is swapping his 10speed Dura Ace crankset for somthing else and has offered it to me cheap. I currently have a 10 speed Ultegra crankset. Will the DA crank bolt right on? Does the bottom bracket need to be swapped as well. Also, how is a crank arm measured? I'm assuming it is from center of the crank axel to center point of the threaded hole where the pedals are mounted. Thanks in advance.

    Yes for 9 -Speed

    I don't have experience with Shimano 10 speed, but I use Ultegra BB on my 9 speed Dura Ace Cranks. I'd be surprised if this wasn't true for the 10 speed.

    Yes, they are compatible. No, you shouldn't have to change the BB assuming the current one is the proper length for your setup.
