It wouldn't have to be THAT precise. if you relied on the shifter for the largest and mid sized rings, dumping cable tension would leave the FD to sit on the lower limit screw.

IIRC, triple front shifters never made it higher upstream than 105, which is why the gizzmo existed- to be able to run 600 (ultegra) and DA.

Are you running an 8s chain on a crank with 10s ring spacing? Have you done that before?

Also, are the BB cups threaded directly into the frame, or do you have a spacer you can juggle around?

Reading that makes it sound like the retaining ring is only for the '93 Quadra.

If you don't mind me asking, what makes you think you have a 93? That's VERY early for those forks.

Say you wanted to change your stem to another quill stem- would you be concerned about quill length then?

To echo for the nth time, no, it's not a problem.

6800 is smaller in diameter with the same tooth pattern as the generation before and spam stuff. That said, usually 6800 BB's come with the adapter ring to use the same tool. TL-FC25
