6600 Ultegra crank with 6750 drive train

Currently my bike is running Ultegra 6700/with a compact 6750 crank. [same]
With the compact I am running a 11-23 and though I like it I prefer mashing to spinning.
If I buy a 6600 ultegra crank SLC 53/39 the light grey and run a new shimano chain and keep everything else as is, front der. and the full drive train except the crank will their be any problems with compatability and shifting.


Thanks in advance

Gary

You'll most likely need to raise the FD a little bit and do a little adjusting but it will work fine. I did the same thing in reverse with no issues.

You'll probably want to leave the FD cable a little slack when it's in the small ring, because the rings are actually spaced a little closer together on 6600. Don't want your FD being totally rammed against its H screw.
