Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 worthless junk! I bought this bracket to replace my worn out tiagra 4600 bottom bracket. Once installed it seemed great. Quiet and smooth, i thought what a bargain for 11 euro. I'm a heavy cyclist at 95kg and I probably do between 60 to 180km per week depending on the weather. after about 6 or 700 km the bracket is now cracking and creaking again and wrecking my head. Maybe if you're a lighter cyclist not doing so many kilometers then maybe this bb would work out ok for you however my verdict is to stay well clear of this product. I've just purchased a 105 bb for 1euro more lol .....maybe it'll last more than 2 months 08 August 2014
Rated 1 out of 5 by didn't last long Only got about 1000miles out of this as it started to develop play. It was the left cup, usually I find the right wears out first, however I think it was grit etc that got through the seals- which once taken apart reveals poor sealing. Got this because the FSA cups are 4x the price and shimano cups are interchangeable with FSA. My FSA ones got over 4000miles. Yet I am now trying out ultegra as a comparison. 16 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 Very cheap doesn't last long I bought a bike in Feb 2013 with this BB fitted and by November/December it was work out creaking and crunching. I have since done more KM's on the newer one and just this weekend it has started to do the same. 6 months on average use and 4 months on high use in the UK winter is all this will last but I'm talking 200-300km a week use as a commuter and longer rides. Price is great and no need to pay more for expensive parts as they probably don't last much longer. 12 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by I'd like it to be more durable I have exactly the same usage and lifespan experience. Riding round the year, this BB lasts not more than 9000 km until it becomes completely unusable. Some radial looseness in it, however, appears pretty soon, after only 3000 km or so, even during summer season which is generally much less severe for components. Not impressed, yeah, compared to classical MTB BBs with inner bearings which survive three Siberian winters and 18000 km without visible sign of wear. Considering its price, though, overall it's a fair value for money if you don't mind replacing it as needed. 20 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Cheap but made of cheese Cheap, but don't last very long. I wear them out every 6 months or so. Don't bother buying more expensive shimano hollowtech BBs as the bearings inside are identical and will wear out exactly the same. 03 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect road bottom bracket for not much money Great value, great quality. I can't find any reason to buy a more expensive bottom bracket for my road bike. I ride it as a commuter and on rides up to 140km. 03 February 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Does the job Cheap and cheerful. Why pay more for a bottom bracket - that wont last any longer - but matches the colour of your groupset. Newsflash - No one else cares whether it is the correct colour finish, its only a bottom bracket. 21 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good value Got this bottom braket for my boardmaneasy to fit and runs nice and smooth 28 December 2013

Yep. 4600 works with tiagra. You'll need to measure width to make sure you get the right length, but specialized is probably british 68mm

Just thought I'd ask, does this come with the bearings fitted, or is it a set of cups only?
