Hi,

I'm looking at upgrading my TT bike to etap. But the one thing I'm wondering is if I have to replace my Cranks. I'm currently running FSA Neo Pro Carbon TT Cranks. So my questions are has anyone tried running etap on fsa rings? and how wide is a Etap front derailleur when in the big ring?(center of braze on bolt to outside of cage would be great) since I hear it can hit crank arms.

Thanks

Doing much front shifting on TT? Why not try and if there is a problem just switch out the rings to sram ones.

should be a low risk upgrade

It's a Red 22 and FSA chainring issue. eTap doesn't matter.

If mechanical works, so will eTap.

I'm not worried so much about the chain rings,I can deal with slow shifting up front as long as it does shift. I just don't want to have to buy a new crank. I've seen a few photos of the Etap derailleur bodies not clearing crank arms when the derailleur is still in the small ring, especially on Cranks that aren't Sram22. so thats why I would like to know its width when in the big ring.

I have fitted Etap to my TT bike recently

It has an FSA gossamer Power2max crankset (wtih Praxis rings) and shifting/crank clearance are all fine
