Shimanon Dura-ace crankset with Campagnolo chorus 10(5 posts)

Shimanon Dura-ace crankset with Campagnolo chorus 10smizo
Apr 12, 2002 12:15 PM
Does anyone know if the Shimanon Dura-ace crankset will work with the Campagnolo chorus 10 components? I need a shorter arm length and it looks like Shimano is the only manufacturer that produces them.

Thanks
Scott

Good question. How short do your crankshave to be? If it was anything but the 10-speed stuff I would say no problem. I am running the opposite on my commuter. Daytona cranks with Ultegra 8 spd STI. Not a problem. I have a feeling that if you ran a 9-speed chain (which some will say works fine) it would not be a problem. THe narrow chain might not work with the spacing between the rings up front and the cut of the teeth. Purely speculation on my part.

Good luck!

I would like to try a 165mm crank. I'm 5'1 with a 68cm inseam.

Lennard Zinn(maintenance book guy) did a tech article for Velo News in which he said,fron actual use Campy ten worked fine on a shimano 9 crankses.Campy says ossibility exist that the narrower chain could get caught between the rings.

10 speed chain works fine on old campy 6/7 speed cranks, so there's no way there will be an issue of the chain jamming in between rings. Pick up an older campy crankset in 165--there's a sweet C-record one on Ebay right now. All you have to do is put the 10 speed outer ring on it and you are good to go. Your bike will reject the DuraAce with time. Sort of like an organ transplant that isn't compatible. ;^)
