The 11-25 will work fine with the SRAM components, the bigger question is whether your derailleur will handle the change in cassette range. Head to your local shop for specifics. It probably will, but that's the part you should go about verifying.

I'm afraid I think the other answers on here don't have it right. It's unlikely to be your rear cassette which is the problem. Your problem is most likely to be with your chain and rear derailleur. Happily not expensive just can be a bit tricky to fix. Three things to check: New chain is the right length? The new chain should have the same number of links ...

First note that if you get full movement in your rear gear shift you will probably have all the range you need. I think this would be EASIER than working on front derailleur. SO I recommend working on your Secondary Problem first! :-) NOTE: Allow plenty of time for fiddling with your gears. Do it in a warm dry place when you have time so you can learn how ...

It is possible -- you can either find a 36 spoke internal gear hub (since you have a 36 hole rim) and have the wheel re-built with the new hub and bodge on the cables for the IGH shifting. Alternatively, there are automatic shifting hubs (e.g. the SRAM Automatix) which will also have a coaster brake and no shift cables. That being said, its probably going to ...

There is a question here, it's just hidden in a misleading focus on details. How do you choose chainring setups? You need to analyze the gear ratios and speeds that you ride at and figure out the correct overlap for your riding. The way that I've found most useful to do this is to chart the gear ratios vs speed and use an error bar to represent the speed ...

You probably have the right drop out width. Unless it has down tube shifters you have cable routing. The chain size must match (e.g. cassette number of gears) and chain ring width. Your existing chain rings are probably too wide. But I think you would be better off finding a newer used bike with the stuff you want. If you stay with the same number of gears ...

New 105 5800 crankset is compatible with older components, according to numerous posts in this thread. Yes, you can use the same cassette. Even if you use short cage rear derailleur now, it should have enough capacity for 28 teeth sprocket. 11 speed Shimano chains have the same internal width, so these should be compatible with older 10 speed systems. ...
