Top shelf: Cannondale Hollowgram SiSL2 chainset first look

When you lift the Hollowgram SiSL2 chainset out of the box, nothing quite prepares you for how little it weighs. The oversized crankarms convey a sense of purpose and the 10 arm chainring design, apparently inspired by race car wheels, lends the crankset a delicate presence. But it’s the lack of weight that takes your breathe away.

Damn crank removal tool - is this busted?

Hey, removing my crank arm today using an Ice Toolz Crank Removal Tool. It was a struggle which should have told me I was doing something wrong. I left the little silver metal cap on, which has now jammed in my crank as per the pic.

I think I know the answer to this (it's busted!) but can someone look at this picture and let me know their thoughts? The silver cap is wedged solid. I'm assuming I should have removed it before attempting to use the tool. New crank for me?

For sale: Rotor 3D+ Chain-set 53/39

I'm selling my Rotor 3D+ 53/39 chain-set. It came with my Focus Izalco pro 1.0. It's been ridden for around 200 miles and feels lovely and stiff. I'm only changing it as I prefer a compact chain set, just personal preference. The chain set is in great condition and I'm happy to upload more photos if requested.


BBRight crankset and BB

Hi all

I've taken advantage of Cervelo's very generous sale and I'm picking up a shiny new R5 frame at the weekend.

I've been reading about the BBRight system and trying to figure out how best to put the drivetrain together, which is planned to be from an SRAM Red gruppo.

From what I've read I can put a BB30 press fit BB in and then I need to get one of two adapters to take the GXP Red cranks, either from Enduro or Wheels Mfg.

First question is, does that sound right?

Replacing old crank on road bike

I have an old Bianchi with Shimano 105 parts - 9 gears
I would like to replace the crank with a compact (getting old ...)

any idea if the newer cranks (designed for 10 gears) will do the job?
how about the FSA components? do they work well with Shimano parts?

Crank tapping noise

Hi guys,

after years of loving cycling i finally got myself a 2008 Trek 1.2.

It had only limited use when i brought it and i've done 450 miles.

I have noticed a tapping noise when i put pressure on the peddles, mainly the left hand peddle.

I'm not a bike techy yet so not sure on the cause or possible remedy.

Any help would be greatly apreciated
