    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...

    I'll second the estimate of $80-120. A buddy of mine was looking for the same sort of quote last summer and the bike shops that he asked around here were all right around $100. So I told him to...

    I think you're correct that removing the red sticker will expose a rectangle of paint that will be a slightly different color. There's is no telling how noticeable it will be. You'll have to decide...

    You need to go to the derailleur manufacturer's website and look at the specs for the specific derailleurs that you are interested in. You may also find that spec on certain retailer's websites, but...

    I agree with all the posters above. The A and B designations refer to the chainring combinations that will provide optimal performance. But it's not like your bike will explode if you mix an "A"...

    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

    You need to figure out your required chain wrap and compare that to the chain wrap capacity of the derailleur(s) you are interested in. To identify your required chain wrap you follow this formula: ...

    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.

    The long part should go up the back and guide the cable toward the front derailleur.

    They are an older easton wheelset that was in the EA70 range as far as specs go. Bonktown has been listing them for $199 for the last few weeks....

    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...

    I agree about getting new pads. I think the Tiagra calipers come with combined pads/holders, so you'll have to fork out a few more bucks for the holders too. On long descents it's really about...

    Are the cables hooked to the derailleurs? I only ask because I've had STI levers before that wouldn't shift with the small lever while off the bike, but as soon as you gave them some resistance by...

    Diablo, I agree with you that the function isn't to crank down on the adjuster with all your weight, but remember that "preload" isn't a very specific term. Something that has 2000# of preload and...

    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.
