FD/crankset/chain compatibility on a CX
I recently had my LBS swap out an LX touring triple (48-36-26) with an Elita Cross double (48-34). Like the new crank, but the bike doesn't shift as well anymore. My current set-up is:
Elita 10 speed crank
Shimano HG93 9 speed chain
Dura Ace bar end shifters w/Pauls Thumbies and
older LX FD sized for a 48T max big ring
No matter how I adjust the limiting screws on the FD, the chain is rubbing. Even using the friction shifters, I can't seem to dial it in. Any suggestions?
Do I need a narrower 10 speed chain? Do I need a road double 10-speed FD? Do I need a new LBS?
