Ultegra triple -> double crankset Q(4 posts)

Ultegra triple -> double crankset QCrankist

Waaaa. I wanna do this. Why can't I just drop the inner ring and switch out the BB, and change FD & RD?

You also need to replace your left shifter to go with that new FD, and once you've done that, just buying the proper crankset is small potatoes.

I think that people who are obsessed with dumping their triple so that they spend a bunch of money for no performance enhancement must simply be waaay too motivated by what others think. (I'm NOT saying you are one)

Are you sure that the shifter will not work for both set-ups? I heard that there is an adjustment for 105 & Ultegra for that purpose.
About $175 for the crank, not TaterTots to me. I would like to know the difference between the two cranks.
I find the triple just a pain in the ass, never use the GG. One problem I have is shifting from lg. chainwheel to middle; the chain often just drops down to GG. Trim works well and all else seems adjusted well.
My wife wishes I cared more about what others think, but that doesn't matter...

afaik the shifters are compatible. there is no Ultegra triple shifter, ditto for the lower groups.
