    Drivetrain compatibility

    I'm thinking about a frame switch with a friend. The frame I'm looking at is all carbon and has a compact double drivetrain but all I have available is a triple setup. So my questions are;

    -Can I install a Shimano Ultegra triple crankset with an Octolink BB where a compact double with a Hollowtec II BB was?

    - Will I have any problems switching the FDs since they are both braze on type?

    Thanks in advance for your time

    I see no problem with that particular part of the switch.
