Pardon me exhuming this thread...
...but I've got an opportunity to get a 32/48/58 (yes, that's fifty-eight teeth!) set of chainrings for my EZ-1 SC (steel), and was wondering if the front der could handle it. They come, BTW, from a crankset for a tandem BikeE. Yeah, I know, that span between the 32 and 48 rings is a big climb. To be honest, I'm not worried about that. I have little occasion to use the "granny ring" (or, in this case, since it's not that small, the "auntie ring"). I just wanna know if I can position the cage so that it'll throw the chain between the 48 and 58 rings properly. I know this will gear up my 'bent considerably, but that's exactly what I want to do.
I don't have the bike in front of me, so I'm not even sure how you physically position the front derailleur (or if it's even possible).
And yeah, I'll probably have to add links to my chain. How many?
