I'm looking at replacing my 52/39 Campy crank with the Centaur Compact double set up.
Any Campy experts that happen to know the spindle length required.
In the pics I've seen, it looks like that set uses the traditional Campy square spindle. Is that correct?

Look up on the campy website. You will have to change the FD as well. The standard double and/or triple FD will not work well at all.
If you're using old style, square taper, cranks then it's an even swap. FYI, Record & Chorus use a 102mm for a double and 111mm assymetrical triple BBs. Centaur and below use a 111mm double and 115mm assymetrical triple. The 111mm Record/Chorus is different and not compatible with the Centaur 111mm.
