I've been riding a 9 speed Dura Ace triple equipped bike for a while and the thing works great. I recently scored a great deal on a Litespeed Ultimate frameset, and decided that I would build it up with a triple also, but I thought I'd do 9 speed Ultegra to save a few bucks. 9 speed Ultegra shifters are apparently compatible with both doubles and triples, so that's what I got. But, after setting it up and riding it a bit, I've noticed that the Ultegras don't seem to have as many trim positions as the D/A shifters have. I can't seem to get it set up where I can use all my gears. In the big ring, I can only use the smallest 3 or 4 cogs without getting chain rub, and in the middle, I can't use the smallest 3 without rub. My D/A equipped bike gives me trim positions in both the big ring and middle, but the Ultegra doesn't. So I guess I'll have to swap the shifters for D/A units unless someone has any ideas? THANKS!
