    ...and if the current cranks work for you just get the same length (measured from the center of the axle to the center of the pedal hole).

    Crossed cables would indeed cause the symptoms listed, and it's possible that is the cause. Just as with wrong chain direction and general cable friction the same error would have to have been made...

    It appears from previous posts that you've asked a lot of pretty basic questions, and now you've jumped to changing from 10 to 11 speeds. I'm probably preaching to the atheists, but if you want to...

    Three points of contention to the above.

    1. Pry bars (tire levers/irons) should be avoided in remounting if at all possible. It is very seldom necessary with proper technique and can easily damage...

    Calipers, lever or cable are indeed the three places to look. Any one of them can acquire friction from a number of sources. You need to isolate to see where the problem is, and it does not matter...

    That's fine, but your previous post referred to measuring between pins, not rollers.

    Do you have a 2nd bike or a friend's spare bike that could donate a derailleur temporarily, or does your friendly neighborhood/LBS mechanic have a used derailleur in decent shape you could try?...

    Doesn't matter what shifters were before, only whether shifters you want to use work with the derailleurs you want to use. Road shifters are compatible with road derailleurs.

    OP indicated cables have been completely changed out as well as the chain with no change in the symptom.

    Given the above info I would say the wisest step would be to temporarily replace the derailleur. It does not take a crash to tweak a pulley cage out of alignment. Catching it on something when...

    Do you actually mean can you use road shifters with your derailleurs? If so the answer is yes.

    That's for sissies. Your fingertips are perfectly good for finding that nasty stuff, and a band-aid take up less room than a cotton ball.

    One critical piece of info is missing. Did this problem exist from when the bike was new? If not was there any maintenance or incident that occurred just previous to the problem starting? The...

    No, in most cases it's not really difficult - but it does take proper knowledge and some practice. Your expectations may exceed the capabilities or limitations of your bike. It may be the bike has...

    Moving the wheel will make no difference, as there is no "slack" in a chain under tension. One thing is not clear - is this a new or used bike? If new your first step should be to return it for...

    No, the fact it's the 2 smallest cogs confirms the problem is wear, most likely both the 2 cogs and the chain.

    My error - figures were for 100 rpm. I still find it likely that you are pedaling too high a gear for your speed. 80 is pretty much the bottom end of efficient rpm, and if you are pushing hard on the...

    Repeating the same info is not going to advance diagnosis at this point. The BB should first be retightened in place using a cartridge BB tool (will require crank removal). If you still get...

    "Might get away with it" yes, but if the cups are badly pitted you will quickly wear out the balls and will have a hard time adjusting the BB. Considering you are in Europe a local shop may have the...

    No, the photo above is of a bearing cage/retainer.The retainer can be straightened - it's only there to ease assembly - but is best replaced anyway. The races are more commonly called BB cups, and...

    I would recommend removing the seat post and tires before doing so to allow more thorough drying -the tires and tubes will easily dry outside the car if you wish.

    The "saleable" black hubs are properly anodized, and that is the assumption a buyer would make. It's deceptive to advertise hubs as "black" when all you've done is paint them. If you got them "cheap...

    The force exerted by your left leg is transmitted from the shoe to pedal, through the crank arm to the spindle, then to the right crank arm spider, at which point the path is the same as for the...
