Felix, I think you're wasting $$ going with the 10-speed crank. $300 is about the best you're going to do on the crankset and cups. Yet CBO
has the 9-speed FC-6503 crankset and BB-5503 BB cartridge for $115.
If you insist on going 10-speed, then I'd use the matching FD: "The Ultegra 9-speed triple front derailleur is designed for 52-42-30 chainrings, a ten tooth difference, large to middle. The Ultegra 10-speed triple front derailleur is designed for 52-39-30 chainrings, a 13 tooth difference, large to middle." - Al19434
CBO has the FD-6603 braze-on on sale for $40.
Stupidity got us into this mess - why can't it get us out?
