I'm not really happy with my triple. I got the bike on the cheap, a Jamis Satellite with all kinds of sweet upgrades.
I still have some adjustment to do on it, I think, and might want to wind up using it until it wears, but I'd much rather have a double.
What's out there as far as 8 speed compatible double FD/cranks/rings setups?
I don't mind mismatching brifters, etc. Just want a double (preferably not a compact) setup on the cheap.
Do I need a short cage on the back when I switch?
