The sram GXP bb cups use the same tool as a Shimano or FSA external bb does. You can pick one up from many places including Park Tools and Performance Bikes (SpinDoctor) for around $10-15$ IIRC.

Ciamillo makes 2 different types of pad holders. One set is skinnier to work with wider rims. Get a set of those pad holders and you'll be fine.

I must have been so lucky. I built up an '86 660 last month and got the cable through on the first try. I assumed it had an inner guide or something because it was so easy. I guess I should have...

Metalheart, just a quick terminology issue... all of the cranks you describe are "doubles". The 53/39 is usually called a standard double. The 6750 would be called a compact double. The Sugino I...

Here's an example for my roadbike that I ride:
It's a 2x10 setup with a 50/34 crankset and a 11-26 cassette.
a= 50
b= 34
c= 26
d= 11

So my required chainwrap is: (50-34)+(26-11) = 31

Bob, Once you have the non-drive side crank arm off, the rest of the crankset just pulls out. It may take a bit of force, but it isn't threaded or anything like that.

You could drop some weight (60g+) by using a different handlebar. The FSA K-wing's aren't terribly light. But if you like the way they feel (like I do) then keep them.

A Sram 10spd cassette won't have a spacer typically. If you have a spacer it could be the Mavic spacer that is used on Ksyrium wheels. But in that instance, the Shimano one would require 2 spacers...

IMO, the only reason to swap a functioning 7700 rd with a new 6700 rd is if you like the looks of the 6700 better.

Plus, most people don't understand the model number differences, and only go by...

Uhhhh, I hope you're not trying to dispute CACyling by saying it's not a preload adjuster. Because it's function is the same as a threadless headset topcap.

You could also use a BB adapter to convert it to a standard english-threaded bottom bracket style. If you have the available $$, I'd buy the new BB and crankset and utilize the BB30 standard.
