I currently have a 10 spd Campy triple crank and Campy 10spd
Ergoshifters that are from 2004. I'm planning on switching to a new
Sugino XD 600 triple crank only using middle & large chainrings -
34 and 46 rings,
Phil Wood 110.5 mm bottom bracket,
Shimano compatible rear wheel with a 11-34 MTB cassette,
Campy Record 10spd Ergoshifters: use left shifter for front
Shimano 9spd Bar-end shifter on right side for shifting rear
Front derailleur: ???
I used to have a Bike Friday in which I used a combination of the
Campy Ergoshifters and Bar End shifter for rear derailleur and I liked
the way it worked. I had first tried the a Jtek Shiftmate before going
with the bar-end shifter but found that it needed constant adjustment.
I'll be using a Shimano XT rear derailleur and a Dura-Ace bar-end
shifter for complete compatibility.
So the question is: which front derailleur should I use? The
chainrings will be 34 and 46.
I looked on the Harris Cyclery website and see that they have a IRD
Alpina-d front derailleur that is made for a large chainring of 48
teeth. Would this triple front derailleur be a good one to use?
Also a 113mm bottom bracket is suggested for use with the Sugino XD
600 triple crank but since I'm going to be using it as a double crank
would the 110.5mm bb that I already have be suitable?
I'm switching to this setup because I've had numerous problems with my
current setup. I've taken it to several bike shops and they couldn't
figure it out. I tried several things myself without success. I've put
up with it for the last few years but have grown tired of it and am
ditching it now.
