|I'm sure this question has been asked millions of times in fact I'm sure i've skimmed by it at least 100. |
What's it take to turn a double into a triple. Front d. + cranks i would assume. anything else? bb? shifters?
the bike in question has ultegra with xt rear d.

|if it's 9 speed ultegra the shifters will shift a triple.Crankset,proper longer BB, and FD. Short cage RD works but due to lack of wrap capacity,some of the smller cogs won't be useable when in the granny ring.|
|But it's XT der, so anything will work.||PeterRider|

|Every time i see a post regarding creating a triple i offer a trade. I have 2001 shimano 105 in pretty decent shape, i would swap over all the parts required. I never used the granny gear, and am presently running it with a 109mm bb. shoot me an email if you are interested. going to 105 is a bit of a downgrade for you, but i see by your derailleur combo you are not exactly a purist!
