    This is a video that I found to be particularly useful if you want to see how it is done. Maybe you might have missed something that this will help you catch. If the shifting is still poor I would...

    If you already have a DuraAce crankset, I am assuming your bottom bracket is a Hollowtech II style, which means you cannot install a bb30 crankset because it has a 30mm spindle going through the...

    I would personally save your money. The 5700 series has significant advances in shifting quality vs the 5600. Now that 105 has a new version, the 11 speed 5800 series, its easy to see how fast...

    I put my RS10 wheelset on this bike as I picked up a set of Vuelta's that I put on my Cannondale to replace her lead weight Weinmann rims that were horribly unresponsive!
