SWAP or BUY [Syd] - Ultegra 2012 Compact crankset 172.5mm

Postby trailgumby » Sun Sep 22, 2013 2:51 pm

I have a 2012 Ultegra 53/39 standard crankset 172.5mm I'd like to swap for exactly the same length compact with 53/34.

The crank arm length works *really* well for me, but I'm a spinner not a grinder and the 39/25 is too tall. While I know I'll adapt in time, the intensity on the climbs on the way home from work midweek is too high and - long story short - adversely impacts my sleep patterns, which I can't afford if I want to be effective at work.

If you have an equivalent compact crank send me a PM and we'll talk turkey. 8)

Dont forget Ive got the 170mm compact (50/34) cranks if you can't find anything. :D Unless someone else is also looking to swap me their standard crank.
