yeah that is what i thought Jeremy. From what i have read the Shimano BB is compatible with standard and compact cranks
i have been looking but i am only allowed to spend what the Minister for Finance just spent on a rug for the living room! e.g not over $200.00 =-(
Chain reaction have the Shimano 105 5750 172.5m crank arm for $151.60. seems pretty good.
I'm pretty sure that is all I have...
103,28 € here:
though they'll probably kill you on shipping :(
Not sure if it has been mentioned already but have you thought about changing your rear cass instead? It could be cheaper and easier. I have one bike with comp 50/34 - 12/25 and one with regular 52/39 - 12/25. The comp kind of does my head in for all but 5% of the time. Wish I had just gone 52/34 - 12-27 instead.
why does it do your head in?
I feel like I am for ever crossing gears over and side loading chains. Always hunting for gears esp on the flat - another good reason to not ride on the flat!
Why not just change the 12-25 to an 11-25 ?
