It will if you use an adapter. I suspect that's not what you are asking, so no, this isn't what you want.

This unit will not fit. You will need to fit a specific BB30 unit.

Yes this will fit.

I took a 105 BB off and fitted the Ultegra to a 5600 chainset. The 105 BB was actually OK (noise still not traced but its still there), I later fitted the 105 BB to a Gossamer chainset no problem.

They are all interchangeable, something I didn't know before this excercise (I'm a Campag kind of guy).

Unfortunately this is not possible to tell you over an emailed question service you will need to pop along to a store and have them do the work for you.

Replacement is straight forward but you need different cranks (Hollowtech II type) to go with this bottom bracket.
Difficult part is to prepare your frame before fitting hollowtech II bracket first time on the bike. Basically you have to face the frame to avoid future problems. The term refer to making sure the surface of the BB are "parallel" to each other respectively. There is a very expensive tool required to do this. I suggest you get this done in one of Evans workshops.

Should be fine. Have a look at the chart by Shimano showing compatibility: http://bike.shimano.com/publish/content/global_cycle/en/us/index/tech_support/tech_tips.download.-Par50lparsys-0025-downloadFile.html/01%29%20Drivetrain%20Compatability%20Chart.pdf

Question

The Bottom Bracket I am using has code Shimano BC1 36 (68mm, 73mm). I've read elsewhere that the Ultegra 6700BB is 'BSA' thread only, will it work?

Bike is a Giant TCR (circa 1999). The rest of the groupset is Ultegra 6500. I'm looking to potentially replace the lot.
