Got a pair of Schwalbe One tubeless tires in 700x23, and an Ultegra 10 speed cassette.

I took the 10 speed cassette and put it on my wheels for the Orbea, took the 105 10 speed cassette that was on them and put it on a 32 spoke wheel I had purchased for the Raleigh, and took the Sora cassette from that wheel and put it back on the stock wheel of the Raleigh.

I now have a trainer wheel to use with my old tires, my Orbea set up with tubeless tires, and my son riding the Raleigh in the factory wheels.

Jersey from my local shop. Like the shop logo, and the owner is a decent guy.

Tried buying some brake pads as well but none of the local shops had what I was looking for.

a 50/34 compact crankset for the old 85 steel pinarello. it had previously been relegated to 15-40 miles rides around town because it is
heavy (and relatively bombproof) but i've done flattish/hilly centuries on it with a 50/39 and the bailout gear as a 39x27. i can muscle it up
short climbs but anything over 6% longer than a mile got pretty tough. it should be ready mon/tues and can't wait to ride it up some of the local

Thrift store score of the year.

It is in 'functional but very well used' condition.

Yeah, $5 seems like a lot for that. True, it's a functional grey circle, but.. meh.

Weird. Is there a problem posting pics from Picasa (google+)?

I'd imagine only you and your friends on google+ can see your photos.

New Shimano 105 5800 crankset that I picked up from Ribble.

This replaces my Ultegra 6700. I've been trying to do more spinning and less grinding so I though I'd try a compact crankset and have gone down from 39/53 on the Ultegra to a 34/50 on the 105. I've also downsized from 175mm cranks to 172.5mm. I've felt with the higher cadences I've been doing lately that a drop down in crank length was in order. Current cassette is 25-12.

As the Ultegra 6700 is 10 speed and the 105 5800 is 11 speed I did some reading up on the internet and it seems that for the crankset the 10 speed versus 11 speed shouldn't be a problem. I've only taken a quick spin up and down the road and the shifting seems ok at the moment. I haven't changed the chain length (maybe next time I change the chain I will take a link or two off) or the front derailleur position yet. I will have to see how things go tomorrow on a proper ride.

I didn't need to change the bottom bracket bearings, the Ultegra came straight off and the 105 went straight on.

Tools required for this job:

Torque wrench (the two left side bolts need to be tightened between 12 and 14 nm)
Hollowtech II crank install tool, part no TL-FC16 (this is a small plastic tool that you use to hand tighten the plastic bolt on the left crank, I've used expanding pliers for this job before with some success but the tool only costs $5).
15mm spanner to get the pedals off and on.

I also took the opportunity to weigh the parts.

Shimano Ultegra 6500 175mm 39/53 crankset weights:

Ouch. I used what I think is the very same tool for the first time yesterday on two different chains; so far, so good. I'm sure they'll replace it.
