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.

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

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.

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.
