Road triple running only two rings question.

Posted on
  • Hey,

    Can anyone help with this conundrum?

    I’m wondering whether it’s possible to take off the big chainring on a triple crank and run smaller chain rings i.e. 26+36 using a Tiagra 4700 front mech? Will the mech be able to cope with the small ring?

    The idea is get lower gears on a road set up.



  • Few people have done similar.­06/#comment14282015

    Also ask @amey he know everything about baiks

  • Brilliant. Thanks for the link.

  • I've got a new Sugino triple chainset in 165mm (110BCD) if you're short-legged. If you want to go HT2 and buy some NOS Ultegra 6603, drop a line, they should be able to source one for you.

  • Hey. Thanks for the info. It’s is going to be HT2 so i’ll drop bicyclist a line. Thanks.
