Sorry if this is obvious but after searching around I wanted to double check.
I have a Specialized Allez 24 2011 - specs are here: http://www.evanscycles.com/products/...25026#features
After cycling the length of Ireland through rain, more rain, and then the bike surviving two Easyjet flights, it has started to make a little noise when I pedal.
On inspection it appeared to be from the cranks which I tightened, before realising the whole bottom bracket has some wobble to it.
I have managed to remove both the crank arms now after buying the much needed tools, but am now a little unsure how to proceed.
Here is how the bottom bracket looks:

I think it could also do with a bit of a clean too as they look dirty and doesn't feel/sound smooth. I have purchased some bearing grease.
From what I have read, it would appear I have a Shimano bottom bracket? And to tighten it I will need to purchase something like these?:
I just wanted to confirm that I had got this right before buying something I might not need.
