52/36 crankset

Postby Craigbes » Wed Feb 06, 2013 21:10 pm

Does anyone out there know if there is a campag 10 speed compatible 52/36 chainset available? I want to squeeze a bit more speed out without going up to a 53/39.

16t might just be too big a jump for the front mech.

You can use 11 speed chainsets with 10 speed groupsets.

Do you have an 11t sprocket?

I only have a 10 speed sprocket. But if it will work with an 11 speed chainset that may be a way forward. Thanks all :)

He's asking if your smallest cog has 11 teeth, not if you're running a cassette with 11 sprockets.

I was. 50x11 is good for 45mph+.

I run 52x36 with an 11-28 70kph and 300watts is no problem at all - however I cannot generate more than ~400watts in 52x11 at that speed so would want a big gear if I was trying to sprint in it. I cannot imagine a scenario where that is relevant for me though...
