Colnago BB conversion from Shimano to Campag

Post by Renault78law »

I have a V1-R with Ultegra that I'm interested in switching to SR 12. Would you please advise how difficult the bottom bracket conversion is? I don't have tools but would be willing to invest if not too pricey. If I have it right, I would remove the Shimano BB86, and press in the Campagnolo BB86 cups? I'm obviously new at this so any advice would be appreciated.

Edit: both are mechanical, FYI.

You can knock out the old bb with a punch and hammer if your careful and take your time. You dont want to be hitting out the colnago cups.
You need a press fit tool and appropriate drifts to re set though. Its probably not cost effective to do a one off. Take it to lbs
