I have a Power2max FSA K-Force Light crankset, so far I used the bog standard FSA BB-6000, which Power2max supplied with the crankset.
Now the bearings are worn, I wonder if I can replace the BB with the Shimano offerings? SM-BBR60 or SM-BB9000 maybe.

The reason I'm unsure is because on the K-Force there's no way to set te bearing "preload", I torqued down the single bolt, and it was fine with the FSA BB.
Will it be the same with a Shimano BB?

IIRC, there exist three breeds of FSA MegaExo BB, but the 6000 is dimensionally the same as hollowtech. Torque the bolt a little at a time, back it off if it's starting to bind, like preloading a headset.
