Hi, Im looking to change a chainring on my current setup. Basically I want to change this bike into a road touring bike so the 'timetrial style' rings on it are no use on some of the big hills that I want to do.
The current setup is a campagnola strada 170 crank arm with a 48 tooth ring and a 51 tooth ring. Is it possible to get a smaller (less than the 48) chain ring for this type of crankset (suitable for hills) or would I need to buy a complete new setup. If its the latter then is it possible to get one that matches the bottom bracket.
Ive been looking at the chainrings around and the Record ones would appear to be good. Am I mistaken in that the spacing for the crankarm to attach to the chainring would be different?
Hope someone can help!!

If its 144, you might be able to find some good ring. I doubt it, but in the off possibility its 151, you are pretty much screwed in the sense that you cant get rings, but you hit the jackpot on resale.
OK so the smallest that I could get is a 41 ring. Is it possible to get complete cranksets (rings and all) that would fit the bottom bracket. Its a square tapered one. Is this possible to do (ie are there any existing cranksets that would fit it)
This will allow you to use any size rings you want and will be a good fit as a double on your present bottom bracket. They're pricey, considering that all you get is a pair of arms, but you didn't say you were on a budget. I was considering a set for my Peugeot, but I found a Campy NR triple for way less money.
Yes I have got a campy bottom bracket. It hasnt been changed at all so the original one is still in it.
OK say that I forget the existing complete crankset and keep the bottom bracket. Is it possible to get a different crankset to fit my bottom bracket. From what I can see, because it is a traditional square taper one, some different campagnolo cranksets would fit it as well.
