Shimano 5700 Compact Crank105 has always been a good choice for the cyclist looking for affordability, durability and reliable shifting. In recent years however, SRAM has improved Rival, introduced Apex and Shimano has updated Ultegra and Dura Ace. The 105 compact crankset has lagged behind in terms of functional and aesthetic upgrades. The 2011 5700 crankset puts 105 back in the game, ready to compete head to head with SRAM.

The 105 5700 crank borrows some if it’s looks from DA and Ultegra and is available in black and silver. It’s nice to have the choice of an all black crankset if you want to match it to your older 105 components. Smooth, accurate shifts are a Shimano hallmark and the 5700 crankset retains these qualities. Upgrading to Ultegra or Dura Ace will get you a hollow outer ring. 105 goes with a solid alloy chainring for simplicity and cost savings. Only the most discerning riders and weight weenies will notice this difference.

As with past incarnations of the 105 compact crankset, 5700 uses hollow crank arms and a hollow spindle to keep weight down. Another trickle-down feature from DA is the addition of a tad more space between the rings. This small adjustment allows riders to cross chain from small front ring to small back cog without getting any chain rub on the big ring.

Many entry to mid-level 2011 road bikes have come equipped with the 105 5700 compact crank. Any rider with a need for value and race-ready performance will be very happy with Shimano’s new 105 crankset.
