My new bike came with a shimano 105 crankset and on it there is a sticker that says octalink. What is this octalink - is it just shimano's special name for a splined bottom bracket.

... to differientiate from ISIS 10 spline, which is totally incompatible. In fact, Shimano had no specific market name for the BB till ISIS took off.

We abide.

Remain In Light.
