New Shimano 105 5800

Postby singlespeedscott » Thu Apr 03, 2014 6:45 pm

Looks very interesting especially the hydraulic disc, mechanical shifters. I think they need to introduce a 46t and 48t big ring for their cranks though. Some people like to explore beyond the bitumen.

You'll probably find they'll be available as "non-series" Cyclocross-targetted cranks - they've had 10-sp versions out for a couple of years. These will work with 11-sp too.
I had a thought, but it got run over as it crossed my mind.

There is a 46/36 in the 6800 range. Isn't wide spread yet but would imagine it would be soon with cx season approaching

6800 has 34, 36 & 39T small ring, and 46, 50, 52 & 53T big ring options (46 & 52 designed to pair to the 36T).

I like what I'm hearing there Scott. But Postmans Track IS bitumen though. :P

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on this baby. Exactly the sort of bike I'm after.

I will seriously pay a massive amount of money to see you do postman's with a 46 or 48t chainring! :lol:

Smith street I'm thinking something like this:

http://somafab.blogspot.com/2013/04/bea ... -from.html

The 105 levers, or whatever Shimano's number is for them, would be great. For me I would be gutting the mechanicals. I just want the levers and calipers. My drivetrain would be 8 speed, compact square tapered cranks running barend shifters.

Looks like a good new groupset.
Anyone know if or what will be compatible with the 5700 set? Would love the new rear derailleur so I could use a 32 on the back and get rid of the compact on the front :D

Tektro are one step above Avid/SRAM. A small step.

If Dura-Ace & Ultegra are any guide, only the cranks and mechanical brakes will be cross-compatible.

I recently tried a wheel with a 34t cassette with my 2011 105 RD. I was just wanting to see if the 40c tyres would clear my frame ok but .... the 34t worked fine.

A decade of workshop experience has given me plenty of grounding to rank Tektro/TRP (the "T" in TRP stands for Tektro) and Avid/SRAM (similarly, same mob under the labels) pretty low on the list of preferences for stopping the bike.

I've used and worked on Tektro V brakes, cable discs and road brakes and the quality and performance of all of them has been very good, I certainly don't see any need to spend 2 or 3 times as much on another brand.

I had Tektro brakes as OEM on a previous road bike I owned and thought they were ok until I swapped them for Ultegra 6700. Difference was like night and day. Ultegra was streets ahead with stopping power. I had upgraded to Shimano pads on the Tektro brakes which had made them slightly better but the full upgrade to Shimano brakes was much better.

...which has zero relevance to a hydraulic disc brake.

Chances are if the road bike brakes are crap then MTB/CX are going to be crap too.
