Ultegra Front Der with 44-32-22 Crankset?
I want to use drop bar shifters (Ultegra 10-sp STI) with a 44-32-22 crankset (Raceface Deus).
Would an Ultegra front derailleur work? Do I need to get a new Ultegra 6700 (10-sp) front derailleur or would my existing Ultegra 6500 (9-sp triple) front derailleur suffice? Will either work with a large chain ring of only 44 teeth?
I've been happy for 35k miles with the latter and a large chain ring of 46 teeth....
Thanks in advance for your help!
