Need to switch out my 175mm cranks for 170mm. I'm actually not concerned what it is that I buy, as long as that is the end result! This is an area where my knowledge isn't great, so if you have a different solution please do let me know.
Currently running FSA Gossamer Triple, BB30, 10 speed...
I shall soon be swapping my headsets.
I'm reasonably confident in servicing my current headset - taking it apart, greasing bearings, putting back together etc
I've never changed a headset before, but I had assumed (perhaps naively) that it would just be a case of taking the current one apart...
Used aluminium 110mm stem from FSA. Only used for about a 6 months before being swapped to a much shorter stem due to neck and back issues so the stem does show marks from fitting and use, but was never crashed/damaged and is in perfect working order. As you can see even the bolts are still like...
Shimano FD4503 Tiagra front mech - 31.8mm clamp size. For triple chainset (not sure if it will work on a double, never tried it). Hardly used but in used condition, tight smooth pivots.

Got a newish chainset being delivered so thought I would remove the current one in good time. Apparently you turn Allen key anti clockwise, so tried this and got some movement (approx 1 whole turn) but then it locks up again. Same if I go clockwise. Also, rather disconcertingly, the Allen key...
I have a number of bits taken off a Giant Defy last year when we upgraded to 105. They are as follows:
1: ***SOLD***Shimano Sora 9 speed brakes/shifters. These are both in good working order apart from the right hand brake lever on which the spring appears to have come adrift, despite the fact...

Got an FSA Gossamer Pro 386 evo 50/34 172.5mm. Came off my new Orbea bike only used once when I test rode the bike.
£80 plus £4 postage
Also FSA Gossamer Pro stem 110mm with carbon clamp. £40 plus £4 postage.
Great condition ultra light, BB30, weighs in at 610 all in (excluding BB which is not included). Great way to upgrade your groupset, ideal upgrade from FSA gossamer (790 grams for equivalent). Less than £1 per gram saved, and significant improvement in drivetrain performance and stiffness too...
Does anyone know of a safe alternative for the FSA Vision brake cable?... I'm fitting them to a Brompton kitted out with Nitto bullhorns and unfortunately the front cable supplied in the FSA kit is just a bit too short, so I'm looking for an alternative (otherwise I'm going to have to buy a...
fsa vero compact chainset 50/34 170 mm arms with powerdrive BB 113 mm i believe 37 x 24t 68 mm width
minimal usage , bought as replacement set off ebay ages ago but i realized that it wasnt compatible with hollowtech which is what i have now ( Doh ! )
FSA K WING carbon handlebars, 44cm. SOLD
These bars came fitted to a road bike that I bought and are in excellent condition. The previous bike owner told me they were very comfortable. Unfortunately they are too wide for me as I run 42cm.
Now sold thanks.
I recently replaced my FSA BB-4000 (19mm) bottom bracket.
I am now looking to replace my cranks, however I have ran in a problem due to the FSA size being 19mm. I was looking at upgrading my FSA cranks to Shimano however not sure what is compatible. There has been quite a few...
I am gonna change the big chain ring on a bike after having noticed several teeth missing. Having read up on it it seems pretty straight forward ( he hopes ) however all the articles make mention of a special tool, in addition to the allen key, needed to stop the back of the bolts slipping...

Perhaps I have not searched enough yet but nowhere so far can I find any FSA replacement brake pads as the ones fitted to my PX RT58 are wearing out in fact they seem to be all moulded in one piece I am amazed that FSA don't sell them all I can find is the complete brake calipers for sale...
I need a bit of help, the headset on my road bike feels as rough as a badgers arse, I have taken it apart and given it a spruce up and re grease but still rounds rough. So I am guessing I need a new set of bearings.
Can anyone point me in the right direction for the bearing or if I can...
