Hi Bike Forums,
I have a problem:
I have a steel Harry Perry frame that i'm looking to put a modern groupset on, specifically Campagnolo Veloce. I had some crappy parts that i picked up cheaply from the second hand box at my local bike cooperative, but am now looking to upgrade. My issue here is that what i was using a 52 tooth chainring paired with a 120mm square tapered bottom bracket, which gave me enough clearance between the drive side chain stay and the chainring (i'm unable to check what the exact measurements were as the parts have now been stripped and sold back). I know that the Veloce uses the power torque integrated bottom bracket system, and research tells me that combined with the outboard bearing cups that it gives me a total axle length of 110mm.
My man at the local shop doesn't seem to think that will be long enough, and that the chainring (53th) will come in contact with the chain stay. I'm not sure if he's right or not.
I would go for a brand other than campagnolo except that i'm limited to it, as i've got a rear hub that'll only take a campag casette.
what i really want to know are my options as i've become a bit stuck in knowing what to do. Do spacer kits exist for that kind of problem? Does anyone have any experience dealing with this kind of problem?
Thanks a lot in advanced for any replies
