If you have mechanical shifting rather than Di2, I think you'd need a new left shifter and FD in addition to the obvious need for a new crank.

Probably no time to do that before your ride, though. I'd just go for it and make sure you don't push yourself any harder than the MD is telling you to.

My low gear is 34-32 at this point. I don't see a triple gaining me much. Plus, I'm not giving up the quarq.
