    26/39/50 for touring

    Hi,
    my LBS suggested this, and I tried it. They put 26/39/50 FSA rings on my Ultegra cranks. That is the only brand I know of that will work. Even with them there is a ramp that needs to be ground off.

    But work they do. I love it. I have 26/34 for my low gear now. But I spend
    most of my time in the middle ring. With a low of 39/34 there are few places where
    I need lower or higher than what the middle ring provides.

    Very cool. I also put on some Shimano a520 touring pedals, and they are just dandy so far.

    TA triple chainrings work well on 8 or 9 speed Ultegra cranks. Don't know about 10 speed.

    Yeah, my first tour bike (giant ocr tour) had that type of gearing after I told my lbs to change the rings and cassette to something more usefull. Now I have pure mnt gearing (even better)
