Any pictures of the Ultralight? Hard to see the 'silver' transfers on Specialized site.

Hi All,

Which bottom bracket would you recommend to use with Dura Ace 24mm?
I'm waiting for the new S works crank with powermeter to come next year. Hence do not wish to spend too much on BB brands like ceramic speed. I'm considering C bear.

Cheers

I use the Praxis Works bb adapter in all of my Specialized bikes, with Shimano cranks... 3+ years with no issues. I have the ceramic model in my Venge and Shiv TT and the standard bearings in my Allez. The Shiv is super efficiant and free-spinning, especially with the combined use of the ceramicspeed OS pulleys and molten speed wax chain.

Just use the adapter that converts 30mm to 24mm that comes with your bike if there is one?

different bike to the 6.178kg bike above - but neither look to have the silver logo ?

Looking through the reviews of the ultralight that were doing the rounds a few months ago, they don't seem to have the silver logo either ?

specialized website says the opposite ?

ultralight = ultralight monocoat black / silver reflective clean
standard = mono coat black / white reflective clean

pictures on the website also seem to show that too ?
