    Tighten the cleat mounting bolts. The soles of most SPD shoes will compress at the cleat mounting point and the bolts will loosen. Tighten them up.

    For STI road shifters you need to use a road front derailleur despite the relatively small large chainring. However, a road fd should work adequately as Shimano used to sell RSX road cranks with...

    As Andy noted "play" could either be looseness in the hub bearings or an out-of-true rim and the OP needs to determine which it is. If the bike is relatively new, the selling dealer should correct...

    You haven't discovered the quick release lever? "Undoing" the caliper take maybe two seconds if you are slow and deliberate. Reinstalling a disc wheel requires care to assure the disc is aligned...

    Did you by any chance turn it to the limit of its travel?

    Assuming a standard 1" threaded headset, most top race and locknuts require a 32 mm headset wrench, right?

    Except the illustration shows counterclockwise to tighten, which is correct.

    If there is a chain catching pin on the big ring it should be mounted immediately behind the crank arm and, of course, facing it. Typically the engraving (brand name and tooth count) face outward...

    Andy is correct. Keep in mind the 6 mm hex socket is at the threaded end of the bolt, NOT in the head, so you are turning it from the "wrong" end.

    The 5700/6700/7900 Shimano chains were directional and, at first, recommended for double chainrings only. Why? No one, not even Shimano tech reps, seems to know. The most recent tech documents and...

    A suitable tapered "alignment punch" could be tapped into the guide from both ends to restore it's round shape.

    I'd be leery about building up any used rims with that much distance on them. The stress cracks don't worry me but the brake tracks are obviously worn and you could do a lot of work only to have...

    There are a lot of cartridge bottom brackets significantly shorter than 115 mm so instead of giving up, get the right length. Shimano UN54 bottom brackets are cheap enough to experiment with even if...

    It certainly has a 68 mm English bottom bracket and the rear dropouts are most likely 130 mm so go for it. Even if the rear spacing turns out to be 126 mm, fitting a 130 mm hub should cause no...

    Sure I'm serious. As I said they have been sitting in my extra parts box for quite a while and I'm happy to have them go to a good home. Post an e-mail here and i'll get in touch. Post the e-mail...

    Nevertheless, a motorcycle on a high friction surface can indeed get the rear wheel off the ground and, if carried far enough, perform an "endo". Racers often brake hard enough to lift the rear tire...

    As FB noted, for a given number of "speeds", almost all Shimano cogs including 105, Ultegra and Dura Ace cogs and spacers are interchangeable. What must match is the number of speeds (e.g. 8,9,...

    My feeling (prejudice?) is that stem shifters are about the worst type and location possible. Before you have them replaced consider band-on downtube or barend shifters as alternatives.

    105 brifters are compatible with "road" mechanical disc brakes but not with MTB disc brakes and are not, of course, usable with hydraulic discs.
