righteous upgrade

I upgraded my Shimano 105 crank and BB to the Ultegra crankset and FSA ceramic BB. On average I gained .75 mph in speed. The stiffer crank arms and reduction in mechanical drag are an awesome difference : very SMOOTHE. In my last century of the season I improved my time by 25 minutes on a course that had 3200 feet of climbing.
