    I'm putting the FSA compact (50-34) crankset on my new frame. Everything else will be Record-10. The standard Record front derailleur will work, right? I ask because now Campy is coming out with a compact crank for 2005 and they are marketing a new front derailleur to go with it... thanks for any insight...

    The rear cassette will be 13-26, Record med cage rear derailleur

    don't know about campy as I ride shimano. what I do know is that my FSA 50/34 crankset works fine with my dura ace 7700 fd and rd. in theory campy makes a good case for a specific compact design fd, but in practice my standard performs as it should.

    I have no problem with my 2000 DA 9 sp front derailleur and FSA compact crank.
