Due to ongoing frame issues with the bike my girlfriend was planning to ride in her imminent tri, we ended up getting her a brand new Allez sport yesterday.
Given that I broke the old bike, I felt bad, so have started tricking out the allez with Ultegra kit. So, there's some brand new stuff come straight off it. Not even been ridden round the carpark, just a straight wheel to the car, and then whipped off like a naughty girls bra.
SRAM Red chainset for sale, carbon cranks, 53/39 chainrings, 175mm, excellent condition, ridden twice before being replaced with a shorter one.
Got it off a brand new bike as I converted the bike to triple before buying. Unfortunately, the bike shop (Evans) didn't agree to swap it so I have this spare.
RRP, I think, is 227.95 but am open to any offers. PM, if interested.
I'm thinking about gradually upgrading my current transmission..
Currently on a Giant SCR 3 (2007) with Tiagra Rear Mec, Sora triple front and a generic crankset...
I'd like to upgrade to 105, probably starting with the chainset and front mech. Are there any compatability issues I should be aware of? And will I need to change the bottom bracket too?
Grateful for any advice....
I could sum up this review of All City’s 612 Track Crank in one word: solid. The thick arms of this cold forged crank grip every bit of the square taper on the bottom bracket axle, and the slight hollowing in the back of the arms not only saves a bit of weight but also improves the crank arms’ resistance to torsional flex, making this a very stiff crankset indeed.
Stronglight’s ST 55 is one of those components that does exactly what is says on the tin, sure it’s the workhorse of the range but a great choice for moderately geared town hacks and budget fixer/singlespeed conversions so long as you’re the lighter side of 80 kilos. Non detachable rings, old fashioned square tapers and bog standard 170mm arms won’t set anyone’s Lycra ablaze and the arguably limited ring choices demand a more creative approach to gearing.
Compact chainsets are all the rage amongst the sportive set these days and if you're looking for something a bit special then this super-light unit from KCNC is certainly worth a look. We've had some issues with clicking from the cranks on our set, the source of which we can neither find nor completely cure, though extended fettling has rendered it less of a problem.
