Is that good? Are they conversion-friendly?

Ultegra and 105 what.......

You mean the cranks?
You can use them, but since they take an octalink BB, it's hard to adjust the crankset. And octalink's don't last the longest (their bearings are super-tiny).
you could find old 105 square taper stuff im sure, they would be absolutely fine for a conversion

I have an old square taper 105 crank on my beater conversion. These turn up on ebay all the time and are perfectly good for fg/ss and much cheaper than a new one, and there are more BB spindle length choices to help you get the right chainline. Cheap, used road cranks are a great way to experiment with different crank lengths too. I've played with a number of lengths and found 170s to be the best for me on a fg.
