Quick background: Blew apart my RD (taking hanger with it, but that's another story). Was running a 105 triple. Two facts conspired to make me think about a change: 1) Happened to have an extra, small cage RD hanging around and 2) had an opportunity for an extremely good price on a new compact crankset/BB (FSA Gossamer).
So I pulled the trigger on the compact crankset, now all that's left is I have to replace the front derallieur.
For anyone with experience with this, does it behoove me to get the FSA FD that purports to be specifically designed for the compact crankset (C-16 I think is the model)? Or am I fine with good ol' reliable regular Shimano double FD. Price is about the same.
(And no, a regular double is not an option. Too many steep hills around here, only studs and mashers use regular doubles around here and I am neither).
