    FYI Shimano doesn't recommend using automotive brake clearner, they recommend using denatured alcohol for cleaning. I have been using windex glass cleaner on the pads and rotors.

    You don't need a new FD. The 6670 FD works fine with 11-Speed. The 10-speed crank will also work with the 11 speed chain.
