Triple Crankset

by Coxalg   March 29, 2012  

Currently have Truvativ Touro triple crankset, 52/40/32T and am looking at replacing it, but cannot find anything with same size rings. Any help would appreciated.

Strange one, most with a 52 go 52/42/30

I'll just have a quick scout about see if i can see anything

Ok, having a look about didn't help much, everything that mentions a 52/40/32 seems to be a few years old, perhaps newer versions only come in 52/42/30? Thinking

My mistake on ring sizes they are 52/42/30. Was thinking can get triple with smaller rings, would I need to adjust front shifter to accomodate this?

I replaced a Truvativ 52/42/30 with Tiagra 50/39/30 and the front mech was fine.

You might need to bring the front mech down a couple of mm, that's all

I have one of these, nice chainset and even includes the bottom bracket - absolute bargain if you ask me. It's basically a triple version of the SRAM apex cranks.
