Hey WW,
I have a 2016 Scott Addict 20 and the bottom bracket needs replacing soon.
I believe it is BB86 but I am not sure.
The cranks on it are shimano ultegra 6800
What bottom bracket should I replace it with? the current one has no sleeve in between the two bearing which allows me to access the internal cable routing.
Any help is appreciated!

Should be BB86 according to what u said.

I think u have no experience and proper tool to replace the BB. Better bring it to a shop and observe how it is done.

You can leave the sleeve on the standard Shimano BB72 off can't you?

I have experience working with bikes I am just unfamiliar with this BB. You are correct I do not have the tools so will take it to a LBS. I was just wanting to know what type it was.

Oh, I didn't realise the sleeve was optional. That makes a lot of sense though.
