|1. I need some advice with swapping my Sora triple crank into an Ultegra Double crank. I know that I'll need the 68x109mm Ultegra BB to go with the crank, however this will screw up the spacing with my Sora triple front derailleur(different spindle length). I think that i can solve this by also swapping my triple front der. into a double front der. to go with the double crank.
Question: Am I right with my assumptions so far?
2. Also about my left side Sora triple shifter, - it should work with a double front derailleur, right? I think the detents(or clicks) spacing is determined by the front deraileur and the left shifter is merely a mechanism to move the front derailleur - am I correct in this guess?
Question: will my Left side -Sora triple shifter work with a double front derailleur?
any advice would definitely help - thanks!

2. I believe your Sora shifter should work. I know that Ultegra and 105 shifters are both dual and triple compatible. But I think the detents are contained within the shifters and not the fd.

|Just set the limit screws on the FD and ignore the spare shifting at the bars.|

|thank you both for your assistance. I'll go ahead and try it anyway. If it doesn't work I can always upgrade the necessary equipment to make it work. Cheers! :)
