considering your reply I spent way too much time looking for a triple crank in my price range, available in Europe with 110mm BCD....

found out that only stronglight have some:
stronglight impact triple..
stronglight z light triple
otherwise there are all 130mm...
worth it?
any other suggestions?
thanks again
If all you are looking for is to have more gears available in the range you normally use it might make sense to just replace the cassette or at least try that first. It will be cheaper, easier, and possibly a better solution. If you are still using the stock 11-32 cassette you could try a 11-25 or something like that. If your only using the 3-4 smallest cogs this would put more like 4 or 5 maybe even 6 in the same range.
