WTD: Swap my Dura Ace chainset (52/39) for your compact

by bashthebox   January 13, 2012  

I'm not strong enough to push a big ring up proper hills, so I'd like to swap my dura ace chainset for an equivalent compact.

It's 7800, in very good nick - a few of the usual scuffs but nothing bad. Teeth look good too, hasn't done too many miles. Crank length is 172.5mm.

I'm looking for 7850, or similar - I'll consider SRAM, FSA etc . gotta be compact though.

Oh, and if you don't want to swap but you DO have a DA 7850 or 7950 compact chainset for sale, I'd be interested!

There isn't a DA 7800 compact, but why not get the old series Ultegra 6650 ?

Ha, this is an old bump. In the end I found a new DA 7950 on PlanetX for, erm, slightly less than insanely expensive, so i got that.
