have come to the conclusion that life would be better with a triple ring crankset. we're talking about a +/- 1984 De Rosa frame, and a couple of cartons of odd campy stuff to start with. and lots of long steep hills to be made with a pair of skinny old legs.
current parts on hand include a braze-on chorus FD--which appears to have enough lateral movement to cover three rings--not sure about up and down movement. also on hand is a nuovo record (pattern 83) RD, which I know is not meant for a long chain. lastly, there is a nice super record (says 170 STRADA 0 on the crank arm) which could go right to eBay if any of this idea makes sense.
other relevant info: 126mm rear axle spacing, campy hub with 5 speed FW...and a vintage campy BB in decent condition
So, if this is feasible, what parts could be used, what needs to be purchased, and what goes to eBay?
THANKS in advance and HAPPY NEW YEAR
