eTap and Campy Crank

I'm going to give this a try but I thought I would ask the BF brain trust first. I've got an 11 speed Campagnolo Ultra Torque crank that I'd like to use with my eTap.

Anybody aware of compatibility problems?

I haven't used it with Etap (yet), but I have had a Campy Chorus UT 10spd. crank for well over 10 yrs. with no problem. I would be very sure that you will be just fine. PS-I'm looking fwd to getting my Etap in a few more months. Cheers!

I’m only checking because of the rings shifting properly with eTap but I just realized that I can switch the Campy rings out for the SRAM rings. Should shift perfectly.

Your problem won't be shifting...your problem could be clearance.

The eTap FD has all kinds of inconvenient bulges. The parallelgram of the FD does not clear the DS crank arm on some non-SRAM cranksets, some Shimano cranks for example. I'm not sure anyone has tried UT cranks.

Thanks. I’ll take a close look at that before I start.

In case anyone wonders, I normally use 165 mm cranks and would like to swap out the 170s on this particular bike. And... I have this low mileage Campy UT crank sitting in a box. Since both cranks are for a threaded B.B. shell, I thought I might give it a try.

SRAM chainrings will not fit on a Campagnolo crank

I see that. I had already ordered a new crank anyway. Gave up on being cheap.

As for the clearance issue mentioned earlier, it looked like it would have worked but I ordered a new crank anyway to satisfy my OCD-ness.
