With the cleats of the Shimano SPD MTB style pedals the side float* is +/-3° and system inherent. Nothing else is available. There are however two different types of cleats: One type will only release with a horizontal motion (SH-51), the other also with a vertical movement or combined vertical horizontal movement SH-56). Bikeradar has a description of the ...

11 speed chain rings will be slightly narrower than 9 speed. So they will work, but it's not an ideal pairing. You should be able to keep your rear wheel and replace the 9 speed cassette with an 11. The dropout width hasn't changes, the gears have just got thinner. Not sure what you mean by front derailleur having 3 positions. It swings through a fixed ...

I bought a Shimano Ultegra 6800 wheelset (11 speed) to put on a 10 speed 105 5700 bike. The wheel came with a 1.85mm spacer. However you need to slightly adjust the derailleur and the rim brakes.

Since you said you replaced your old one, I assume you have to tools to remove it. If that's the case, rather than jump to the conclusion that you need to replace it again, take it off, clean the threads and put some grease there, put it on again. This should help.

SPD-SL is harder to clip out of than SPD (MTB style), it's just a fact of how it was designed. It improves slightly with time but it will never be as easy as SPD.

Creaking from the BB area can be hard to localize, but there are basically 5 sources: The cups holding the cartridge in place are a hair loose, and the cartridge is moving around a bit. Not a real big deal but should be fixed. The BB cartridge bearings are going bad somehow. Unlikely. A pedal is making noise. Sometimes this is indicative of a bad ...

Firstly, no you can't use a triple chainring on a double crankset. Second I'd count the number of teeth on the actual chain ring. I don't recall, and was unable to find any evidence of, a 42T XT chainring. So would question if it was a printing mistake. It is possible it was made available as OEM only, but I would have thought it would be given a ...

You are correct that the 42x26 is telling you that the large ring has 42 teeth (and the small 26). I did a search on "M785 replacement chainring" and found a number of sources (but nothing a Chain Reaction). Looking at what I found it appears that the options for the large ring are 38 and 40 teeth. So… Either Shimano has changed the specs on the M785 and ...

I still live in a 6-speed world, but… I think it would work. Do you have the tools to take the 10-speed cassette off and try it on the 11-speed wheel? The easiest thing might be just to try it. You will need a spacer behind the cassette (on the side towards the spokes).

Use spacers on the 11 speed wheel to put a 10 speed cassette on. See your hub manufacturer's page for details, but its normally a 1.8(5) mm spacer (which comes with the hub, but you can buy separately) and a 1mm spacer (sometimes; which you'll get with the cassette). See this page for a table of some common cases.

I feel your pain… One place that I've found that seems to stock large shoes is Bike Tires Direct. Both Shimano and Sidi seem to make models that go up to at least size 52. If you don't want to order from the US, you could still use their listings to find some candidates and then ask your LBS what they can order for you. The shoes will come in two styles ...

All Shimano rear derailleurs have same actuation ration (except for 10-speed MTB), so you can just swap in a Tiagra one. For the second question, a higher quality groupset will be slightly lighter and work better. The shifter levers on Tiagra and upwards are different design, allowing more comfortable shifting from the drops. Changing entire groupset will ...

Here is how I found the answer (30-45 N-m): Followed the link in the first comment on the question (or I could have done a search for something like "shimano alfine hub service pdf"). The link Gordon provided was led to several Shimano products identified only by part number, so I did another search for "shimano alfine 11 hub" and found a listing on Amazon ...

It should be fully closed. The lever is only intended to be opened to allow the tire to pass during a wheel change or if you hit a pothole and knock your wheel badly out of true. If your pads are too close to the rim you make an adjustment with the barrel adjuster. Riding with the quick release open compromises the braking power of the caliper. You may not ...

No -- You've got several problems here. 10 speed mountain Shimano has different cable pull than 10 speed road Shimano (which is the same cable pull as 9 speed mountain Shimano, I believe, so if you double check this, you can drop a 9 speed Deore in). Then, you have the mountain vs road FD, which if you're using brifters, you need to use a road FD. Front ...

Cable pull is the same for all mechanical caliper brakes. The things to take into account are the mounting nut and reach. Older brakes use a hex nut to hold the brake in place while newer ones use shorter bolt and countersunk nut. Most of new brakes are for recessed mounting, if your bike has traditional nut you will either need to find a brake with longer ...

It solves problems which simply don't exist on the road. Making the design change would require a significant investment and Shimano is already moving their upper tier road groups to electronic shifting which makes the whole cable friction aspect a non-issue. I do wish they'd put out a STI lever with the appropriate cable pull for Shadow. Would be great ...

Surest way: Measure the screw on the other shifter and get a replacement at any place which sells screws. Use screw glue if you already know the screw comes loose easily.

Take a look here http://www.vueltausa.com/components/chainrings.html It looks like the flat series is for single speed or old style 5 or 6 speed non indexed shifting bikes. Suggest you need the SE Plus range http://www.vueltausa.com/components/chainrings/se-plus-chainrings.html which is designed for 7 to 9 speed. It should be narrower than what you have, ...
