I have an '06 fuji team carbon that I bought a while back. It came with 105 10 speed but I've been a campy guy since the 70s so I bought it planning to convert it to campy. Not long after I bought it I got a smoking deal on an '06 centaur gruppo. I changed everything but the crank (truvativ elita compact 50/36) and chain (105?) over to the centaur stuff months ago and rode it that way and it worked great. Only problem was the black chrome on the truvativ rings was chipping off and I hated the way it looked - can you say cheap?
Last sunday I finally got around to buying the tools to take the truvativ off and I put the campy crank on (centaur compact 50/36). Long story short, I am having a problem shifting off the big ring and onto the small when the chain is on the outer (smaller) 4-5 cogs. The chain gets stuck between the rings and the crank jus spins. I spent a couple of hours trying every trick I know (moved up, down, toed in, out) to get it to work and I think that I actually ended up with it being worse that what I started out with. FWIW, all shifts up are fine and downshifts on the inner (big) cogs are fine too. Rear shifts are not a problem either.
I called Campy USA and the guy there said I need a campy chain. I don't have a problem buying a campy chain but I have a really hard time beliveing that putting a campy chain on it going to solve all my problems. I'm concerned that I may have a chainline issue. the seat tube is roughly 32mm and I bought a 111mm centaur BB. Could that be the problem?
