Bought a cheap runaround recently. Last job on the long list of things to sort was the BB which wasn't running evenly. It appears that the last clown who had the cranks off, put them back on minus the drive-side bearing cover.
I've refreshed the bearing grease and expect the BB will run...
Will use one so one can go. 105 5800 brakes in great order all round with good pads with loads of life left.
Used and in excellent functional condition and very good cosmetic condition with only a few small signs of wear visible.
Please note, as pictured, pads not included.
Here's the spiel...
I'm fitting a new chainring for my pal , it's a FSA 46 teeth 4 hole type , I ordered a 5 hole by mistake , and I can't find any 4 hole types in stock anywhere , is there an equivalent or can anyone recommend something to solve the problem

Hi I'm replacing the large ring on the above chain ring but when I bolt it back together with the old smaller ring the 2 are too close to allow the chain to bed properly , I've tried different ways round all the rings are lined up but it's flumexed me

My Marin has the above FSA headset, and I noticed last time out that it's developed a tiny amount of play.
I'm not overly familiar with these headsets in terms of fettling, so any advice on what bearings and any crafty techniques anyone knows would be welcome.
How bleedin complicated is it to find the right headset bearings. It’s a FSA orbit C40 headset. Got the bearings out but there are several different versions and I’ve no idea which ones it should be ? The bearings appear to be all the same size ??? For info it’s for a Raleigh Militis 3 carbon...
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...

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...
