    ultegra 10 speed crank compatible with new dura ace external bearing bottom bracket?

    just bought a new 10 speed ultegra crank. while looking at bottom brackets i noticed that a couple of online merchants have better prices on their dura ace bottom bracket than they have on their ultegra bottom bracket. i've looked at them side by side, with a local shop owner. they look identical, except for a shinier finish on the dura ace. are they compatible?
    thanks.

    Same except for finish as near as I can tell. I bought an Ultegra BB and have used it with both an Ultegra and Dura Ace crank with fine results. Superior cranks in my opinion.

    Go with the DA 7800 BB. It's no longer the hassle of the 7700 generation.

    thanks for the info. i'm going to pick up the dura ace bottom bracket today. the local performance shop has it at a great price, on sale.

    You can also use Race Face outboard bearings if you what something different.
    They will also fit the Dura Ace or Ultegra 10 cranks
