Shimano Ultegra 6750 10-speed HollowTech II Chainset - Compact

HollowGlide hollow outer chainring gives vast improvements in rigidity by virtually removing outer chainring flex and hugely improves shift performance, even under high load. The chainring teeth have been developed to work in conjunction with the CN7900 and CN6700 chains for increased contact to provide greater efficiency and improved power transfer. Industry leading HollowTech II cold forged hollow crank arms have been evolved to increase rigidity, reduce weight and improve strength. A wide range of chainring options and crank arm lengths are available to meet the needs of all riders and racing disciplines. HollowTech II integrated bottom bracket uses a wider bearing placement and larger axle diameter for increased stiffness and efficiency.

Great quality, easy to fit

PostedApril 21, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Great quality, easy to fit and simple to buy. I'd like to say it's help me conquer Strava, but it's certainly better than than the entry FSA crank it replaced.

Great compact crank

PostedJuly 17, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
The crank is very lightweight weight compared to my old crank (Shimano Sora square bracket); I got this for a 63mile Cyclone bike run in the North East of England which has a few hills on route. The main thing that made me buy this was the 50/34 rings is that I would have a few more lower end gears now compared to my old 52/39. I found this great for hill climbing on the bike run. There was a few times that shifting to 34/28 (4-6mph) made my uphill struggle on the cat4 climbs easier while still on the saddle. I only ever once reached top gear 50/12 downhill on my run at 42mph and still had room to peddle faster but decided to coast it down to save energy. I found that I use more of the top end gears now compare to a standard crank and I don’t miss my old 52/39 as I only recall reach top gear once maybe twice in my cycling life and that was down the side of a mountain.
Also at 5’6” being able to choose the peddle arm length of 165mm for myself was a plus as my old 170mm crank was straining my thighs. It’s a shame as I think a 160mm length would be perfect but that would mean going custom.
So if you want a crank set that makes cycling up hills easier, you're not bothered about top speed downhill, you don’t want to go to a triple and you don’t want to pay Dura Ace prices. Then this is a great crank set to buy.
The only down side (personal preference) is that I was not that into the new design but it is growing on me.

Brilliant chainset

PostedJune 18, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
This was bought as a part to have a complete shimano 6700 groupset on a specialised s works roubaix frame. I am using this bike now - approximately 100miles a week and this chainset is brilliant -- shifting is smooth.

Lovely compact

PostedJanuary 26, 2011
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: Expensive
"I bought this compact to replace my existing 53/59 105 chainset in preparation for very hilly spring sportive riding. I also replaced the 9-speed ultegra 12-27 cassette and chain at the same time. While any change of ratio takes some getting used to this setup works very well - after several hundred miles and a few races in the hills it's proved to be a great choice. Ultegra gear isn't the cheapest but is very smooth in all conditions, lightweight and really hardwearing without paying real top end prices. It looks really nice on the bike too - quality stuff."

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Bought this new compact crank in December 2010 to help whilst riding in the hills. Fitted it myself which was easy and have ridden a few big rides with it now and is perfect for my rides. Best price I could find online also.
