    Ultegra 6700 Crankset Compatibility

    I have not been able to find a definitive answer on this. If there is an answer online I missed, please point it out to me.

    I have a 7800 DA Group that I love but I want to use a compact crankset. I am considering using the Ultegra 6750 Crankset. Will my 7800 group work with the Ultegra crankset?

    This chart would have me believe the 7800 derailleur will not function with the crankset.

    I would suspect that the 6750 crankset will work with your 7800 group but I don't have any direct experience. An alternative for you might be to use a Shimano FC 700 compact crankset, which is compatible with your Dura Ace components. I use this setup on my Serotta.

    Shimano's new 7900 Dura Ace components have some compatibility issues with both the 7800 series Dura Ace and all other Shimano 10-speed groups. AFAIK, 7800 series Dura Ace works with any other 10-speed group with no problems.

    New question related to this.

    Will SRAM cranksets be compatible with the 7800 group? My assumption is yes, just trying to find out for sure.

    Don't mix those unless you really, really have no option.

    I'd stick with the ultegra - keep everything the same, otherwise you'll be chasing ghosts if you ever have shifting problems where you've ruled out every other cause. I will say one thing about FSA cranks though - stay away from the gossamer.
