"Dura Ace is Shimano's top of the line product range. As such what you pay for is world-beating design and functionality.
The set of Callipers weighs in at 297g average. The maximum tyre size is: 25mm, Rim width: 19-26mm /19-28mm(R55C4-1 Carbon).
Married to Dura Ace cabling these callipers are the best, silky smooth operation the modulation is way ahead of other options.
They just look and operate beautifully.
Wiggle's price and service is outstanding. Bag them; you won't regret it."

The Park Tool Head Cup Remover makes headset cup removal easy. The tool is pulled through the frame until the flared ends snap in behind the cup. A blow on the tool head removes the cup.

"Park Tools is synonymous with quality and this Cup Remover is top quality.
The tool puts your mind at ease when removing those stubborn components. It saves you damaging parts and does the job quickly and effectively.
If you build your own bikes or do your own major maintenance then this Cup/BB Remover will not let you down."

"These Links are fantastic as they allow you to remove your chain regularly and easily for cleaning and re-lubing. That is the best way to maintain the component with most moving parts, namely, your chain.
After all, think about it, your chain interacts with your FD, RD, Cassette and Chainrings. Worn chains prematurely wear all that they impact on. So maintain your chain and you extend the life of these other components. Measure your chain wear with a good quality wear meter like Park Tools Chain Checker.
Some have complained they could not remove the Link easily. If that is you, then pop a pair of link pliers in your basket. You won't regret it.
Why Shimano etc., don't include their own with a new chain does not make sense. These Speed Links are far better than new pins.
The KMC Speed Link means you don't need to use new connector pins each time you need to remove your chain.
Note: some have suggested NOT replacing the Link when you replace your chain. Now think about it, the KMC Link endures the same wear as your chain, so when your chain is worn why would the Link not be? Change the Link when you change your chain.
A great product at a great price."

"This is my second pair of these shoes.
They are built to take a hammering.
The sole tread pattern, unlike the Nike Free, does not grab debris from your run and wedge in your soles.
The support on the upper heel is superb, unlike the Free which is very soft and does not give support on hills.
Wiggle's price was a whole $80 lower than anywhere else I checked. Great stuff, Wiggle, you keep us running."

"Nutrition Energy Gels are a real plus when your fuel levels are low and you need that boost to get you over the line.
Wiggle's Gels are priced at a great price point.
They are tasty too, well, the Blackberry is the best for me.
They are pretty thick so in their consistency.
The bite off/tear off top is relatively easy to open while riding.
At Wiggle's price how can you say no!"

"I have never had a DA chain break on me even when I am heaving those 15% + grinds up the local hills.
The coating on these chains means you should manage some distance before a full re-lube. I only use Finish Line Dry which Wiggle will retail at a great price. Of course, if you are in the UK rain and salt will strip the coating off in no time so Finish Line Dry is even more important. Here in Adelaide we are dry and warm with world class riding TDU riding routes.
Don't forget, your chain is your most important link in your drive train as it interacts with your cassette, crankset and derailleurs. It also has more moving parts than any other element in your bike.
These chains are a breeze to clean. Having tried many methods I have found these chains are best serviced by removing for a thorough clean and re-lube. For this the KMC 11 Speed Chain Links are a must for easily removing and re-installing; returning your chain to pristine condition. If you struggle to remove the KMC 11 Speed Chain Links [as some have said] you can buy a pair of pliers such as the Park Tools Master Link Pliers. They are superb.
After degreasing, cleaning and re-lubing remember to clean off the excess lube. In this area overdoing is undoing.
In short, a great chain at a great Wiggle price that should last you for many thousands of kilometres of riding."

"Shimano's top of the line components are outstanding in design, build-quality and functionality.
The ergonomics of these Shifters makes them very comfortable on long rides.
NB: Make sure your Radius and Ulna to Scaphoid and Carpal angle is set to maximum comfort or you will experience unnecessary stress. There is a personal element in this, of course, but the basics are about undue strain on your physiology. In simple terms the hand-to-arm angle must be correctly set with the roll of the handlebar or the benefit of the Shimano ergonomics will not do you much good. This is an area often overlooked on a shop bike fit.
Weight of Shifters is important to those riding professionally but this should be true for the enthusiast too. Why should the Pro's benefit exclusively!
The big [biggest?] advantage lies in Shimano's swapping mechanical design for electronic. Slightly firmer than a mouse-click these Shifters move your drivetrain to your chosen Cassette ring/Front Derailleur setting. There is little chance of mistaken selections due to the Shimano's design.
Personally, I love the Di2 system but I also love the non-electronic Dura Ace system.
On the programming side, these shifters can be programmed to move all the way up/down the Cassette by simply holding the lever or a chosen number of rings if you prefer. Your bike mechanic should be able to tell you all the iterations you can have.
NB: It is NOT the Shifters that are 'programmable'. The 'brains' of the Di2 system is in the REAR DERAILLEUR. That part of the drivetrain 'reads' the signals of the Shifters to make the adjustments you want. Also, because the shifters function as switches I have run 10-speed shifters with 11-speed drivetrains and Ultegra Di2 with Dura Ace drivetrains. The Pros in Giro do the same when they use Di2 Ultegra medium cage RDs with Dura Ace Shifters and FDs because Shimano do not make a Dura Ace Di2 Medium Cage RD.
Price-wise, these shifters are not cheap but in the world of top-end components you get what you pay for. One star lost for price.
Wiggle provides outstanding service with exceptional customer service [I know this from personal experience] and the best prices.
This product is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED."

"I've been running this PF30 for some time now so I can comment on real life testing.
The BB is a breeze to fit. Just press it in with a proper press tool or do what I did; buy some 10mm threaded bar, a couple of large washers and the FSA or Park Tool metal press adaptors. Of course, you can fit these without the adaptors to guide the shell in.
Avoid knocking these in with a hammer, especially on carbon frames. Make the press or buy one. You will need it again if you are going to run BB30s on a carbon frame.
If you ride a carbon frame as I do [EVO Di2 Race] you will find these cups creak and there is very little you can do about it apart from changing your system to an outboard bearing or other solution. See Wheels Manufacturing for a list of their outstanding solutions.
If you intend to swap out only the bearings you will have some difficulty popping the bearings out without the cups being drawn out of the frame with them. Afterwards you can then press out the bearings from the shell. Although bear in mind your creaking will remain unless you use new shells or new solutions.
If you are going to run a Shimano crankset which has a 24 mm drive shaft you will need adaptors to shim down from the BB30 to the Shimano 24 mm [see below]. Or run a BB30 compatible crankset such as Cannondale's Hollowgram II.
The bearings are not the longest lasting, especially in MTB wet situations. Riders will find 'angular bearings' lasting longer than regular bearings but they will need the same maintenance regime as standard bearings.
With these caveats, I would recommend the product.
Wiggle provides this PF30 at a good price and the Wiggle service is second to none, in my experience."

"These shoes are among the pinnacle of cycling road shoes.
The attention to detail, styling, materials and functionality is simply unsurpassed.
For Speedplay users the SP soles dispense with adaptors and shed a few grams for you gramaniacs [my word for the weight watchers], although you are advised to add the stainless steel protector plates [an extra $15]. These sole protector plates are NOT INCLUDED with the shoes. See the link below to view them.
I have a few pairs of SIDI shoes, one has the Techno 3 Buckle. The Wire version wins hands down. The Techno 3 system uses a nylon line whereas the Wire uses a wire and wheel system on all the adjusters. The latter is better by far as the nylon line can jam.
The SIDI Vent sole used a vent system at the sole which could be open or shut to suit the weather. That required a philips screwdriver. The Wire Vernice is peppered with vent holes on the shoe body and the inner tongue to give cooling. However, if air is forced in so is water for which you will need good covers.
Note the new insoles which promise greater comfort. In my view, having used the standard and the 'comfort' insoles, there is negligible improvement.
Is there a serious negative? It's a REALLY BIG ONE. It's the PRICE and for that one star is lost. Of course, over price the retailer has limited control, and well done Wiggle for your great discounts."

Is this Groupset available with the 50/34 x 172.5mm option?

If not, is it possible to buy the 50/34 set of rings and fit them on the Ultegra Crank supplied with this 6700 Di2 Groupset to make this a "compact" crankset?

Sizing of SIDI compared to Mavic Shoes

Hi,
In Mavic Zxellium Road Shoes I take a 43.1/3 which oddly translates in the chart to a UK9. I say oddly because I commonly wear a UK8 [depending on the brand].
If I were to purchase a SIDI equivalent that appears to translate into an EU 45, a size I have never worn. If this is accurate SIDI's shoes must be small made?

One does not wish to send shoes back and forth with associated extra cost.
Since I wear the Mavic 43 1/3 what size would you advise I should buy in a SISI shoe?
And would I need to bear the return postage cost if the shoe size was wrong?

Thanks for any guidance you can give.

If you are running a 10/11 speed compatible hub on an 11 speed drive train you do NOT NEED the spacer.The spacer is for running 10 speed components on an 11 speed compatible free hub.

This Cassette is for 11 so you won't need the spacer.

If you do not have the $$s for the C24s - which are outstanding - then pop the Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset in your trolley.

Wiggle have these at a superb price. However, save your $$ and bag the C24s. Having run Zipps and other top end wheels the C24s are great all rounders, on hills climbing and descending and on flats.

Lower budget? You can't go wrong with the Shimano Ultegra 6800 Wheelset. Can save up? Then wait and bag the C24s.

Both of these wheels are fantastic at their respective price points.

Enjoy. Ride fast, ride safe.

They will suit your 10 speed nicely with the included 1.85 mm spacer.

Quick release chainlink suitable for use with Campagnolo, Shimano 11 speed and Sram 11 drive systems.
 

What chain tool/multi tool to use for these links?

Best answer
Top 25 Contributor
Top 25 Contributor
Grab the Park Tool Chain Splitter if you need one, which you will probably need when initially sizing a new chain. Park Tools 5 To 11 Spd and Singlespeed Chain Tool is superb.

Once you have cut your new chain to the correct size these Speed Links mean you can remove, clean and re-lube your chain as often as you need WITHOUT a chain splitter. However, you may need a pair of Park Tools Master Link Pliers to pop open the link when removing your chain.

When reinstalling your chain link up with the Speed Link, turn the chain so that the Speed Link is on the top level of your chain not on the crank or cassette, then stand on the pedal while holding the brake lever and CLIP the Link is now fully secure.

These Speed Links are superb.
