So I had my LBS put together a bike for my wife last fall (Bianchi L'Una with a 2006 Chorus drive train and a FSA Energy Compact crank). Everything works great except for the FD / big chainring which refuses to shift from the small chainring to the big chainring while riding. I thought it was an adjustment problem so I went back to the LBS and they tinkered with it and again the same problem. The bike will shift from the small chainring to the big while on the stand but not while riding.
So I read a couple posts here which suggested I may have better luck with a Chorus CT FD. So I ordered one and installed it today and still the same thing. I did more research and come to find out FSA Campagnolo 10 chainrings and Shimano 10 chainrings are list as different products. Of course my Energy Crank is their Shimano 10 chainring, which leads me to wonder if this was my problem all along?
Has anyone had any success with FSA Energy cranks (I think they only make these with Shimano chainrings) and Campagnolo Chorus FDs?
Would a FSA Campagnolo 10 specific chainring set solve the shifting issue?
Do I just need to go to a different shop and find someone who can setup the FD correctly?
Yes, I am grasping at straws but I am desperately trying to get this issue resolved by Mother's Day so I can take my wife riding. Any help appreciated!
