Drivetrain Change: Campy Triple to Double(4 posts)

Drivetrain Change: Campy Triple to DoubleGroupsets
Aug 16, 2003 9:17 PM
Looking to modify a Record 10s Triple Drivetrain (Crankset + Front Derailler, with the remainder of the Grupo Chorus) to a Double Record 10s Drivetrain.

What component changes are necessary to change the Triple into a Double (in addition to the crankset)?

12x25 cogset with long cage rear derailler. Thanks

you need a 102mm spindle length to go with the double crankset and front and rear deraiiers to make it like a faactory job,but the derailers are optional.

His middle ring is 42t. If he has an 11/23 on the back, he will be pushing some mighty big gears.

Im pretty sure you can adjust the inner stop on the triple FD far enough that while you can shift in to the (imaginary)little ring, you wont drop the chain.

If you are going to drop the bux on a new crank and BB you might as well get a new rear derailur. The best thing about getting rid of the triple is losing that dorky long cage.

Good luck,
