    Change 2007 Trek Madone 5.2 SL from triple to compact

    Anyone know what's involved in changing a 2007 Trek Madone 5.2 SL Triple to a Compact. I'm getting different responses from different sources. Is it as simple as just changing the crank and making some adjustments or do more components need to be swapped?

    Winning isn't everything, but wanting to is.

    no, you need a new left brifter. Ultegra is double or triple specific, it cant do both.
