According to the Big Blue Book of Bicycle Repair, Shimano steel chainring bolts 70-95 inlbs. Aluminum 44-88 inlbs. A Park Tool CNW-2 chainring tool or similar is used to hold the slotted nut and an allen wrench turns the bolt. Depending on the size of the chainrings you may be able to use a slotted screwdriver to hold the nuts.

If your fork is a post mount, and your rotor is 160mm, you will not need additional adapters or spacers to fit a Shimano brake. The image from the manual you posted is correct.

Ultegra switched to 10 speed with 6600 model. Judging by Google, Shimano unveiled the groupset in 2004 and it became available in October 2004.

The short and long deraileur cages each have a specified "capacity". This capacity is the sum of the (largest cog - smalest cog) + (largest chainring - smallest chainring). For example, if you have a tripple 30/39/52 tripple with that 11-32 cassette, you will need a deraileur capacity of (52-30)+(32-11)=43. I don't think they make them that large - current ...

It doesn't look like you'd be able to use an 11-32T cassette at all with a 10-speed Tiagra rear derailleur. From [Shimano's documentation] (http://bike.shimano.com/media/techdocs/content/cycle/SI/SI_5XN0A/SI-5XN0A-001-Eng_v1_m56577569830746860.pdf), the largest sprocket that either the short cage or long cage version supports is 30T. If you wanted to use ...

You may need a longer derailleur, because you're going to need to run a longer chain to compensate for the extra teeth. Try swapping the chain first to see if the new cassette work with the shorter derailleur arm, but you may find that the chain will be too long, sag, and rub on itself between the pulley cogs when you're riding on your smallest ring. Whether ...

The term for preparing the bottom bracket shell in this manner is called facing, and yes, it is necessary for all outboard bearing bottom brackets for proper function. To understand why this is, lets compare a hollowtech type system to a square taper cartridge. In the square taper, all the bearings and rotating portions are contained into a rigid metal ...

Streuth, you are right! I just tried tightening my Shimano SR215s and now I can't get my shoes off! I thought you must have very thin feet, but I do not and this position is not all that tight. I have never tightened them up this much before simply because the ratchet straps are old and difficult to tighten. When I get some replacement straps, this is going ...

Edit: frame is BB94 not 386 Your hollowtech bb wouldn't work as you correctly identified you'd need BB386 pressfit bottom bracket, (see exploded diagram below)you'd just need to make sure the bb you choose is compatible with your chainset and yes ideally you'd need a bottom bracket press to fit this or alternatively your lbs would fit it. You'd need ...

You can use any ANT+ HRM strap and/or cadence/speed sensors. Garmin and others sell ANT+ compatible units. You don't have to wait for Shimano to release their own.

There is no video editing software from Shimano. The CSV is present, you should see it if you paired your sensors in the mobile app. I have used DashWare with success with my Shimano action camera, others have reported Garmin VIRB edit software works but I have not tried.

The first result on google is http://www.shimano-sportcamera.com/us/application.php - if you click the little youtube video, it shows how to integrate Ant+ sensors and the video.

The Alvio M4000 is a 9 speed shifter, as long as your XT derailleur is a 9 speed version it will be fine
