    11s Shimano sti front shifting is no fun without matched chainrings and ramps and pins. Vintage and non "system" chainsets are going to torture you and challenge your setup skills. I'd find a 46t/34 Shimano cyclocross crankset or maybe one of those René Herse cranks with 11s 46/30 rings (and an IRD/Shimano/token bottom bracket; the SKF BBs have fat JIS tapers and the RH crank actually mates up to the SKF ISO taper better than their version of the JIS in my experience. No problem with Shimano or other makers' offerings).

    Best Regards,

    I put a Campy triple on my touring bike. 52/42/30. 12/30 cassette. Works perfectly.

    Just adding my $0.02 that you don't want that silver R7000 crankset anyways, it's hideous: Shimano 105 R7000 in SILVER - Bike Forums

    Really beautiful stuff. Correct on the spendy . . . and fwiw, shockingly heavy. . . not that it makes any difference on a tourista.

    Why use a sub-compact crank? Do you want the low gear as a priority, or are you looking to spin along the flat in a big ring in the 48-46t range? You could get a big cassette and a Roadlink to get your low gear.

    FWIW I’ve used the Sugino OX 901 with 11 speed Campy (48/32 rings) and it is perfect.

    I bought a daVinci 9-ish years ago. At that time, the arms were polished but not anodized, so they dulled pretty quickly and pitted in New England winters. Maybe they've updated their manufacturing processes since then. That plus the never-ending creak with the Ti bottom bracket drove me to the Sugino OX2-901D. I've been pretty happy with that one with both Campy 10 and Shimano 11, though now that it's time to replace the chainrings I'm gagging at the price a bit.

    If I could find a NOS 5800 crank in 170 I'd probably try it.

    If you don't mind square taper, the stronglight impact is the no non-sense choice. Exist as regular compact with many sorts of gearing combos as well as triple. It is officially compatible with 9-10 but I had no issue using it with campy 11.

    The CX50 comes in 46/36 and silver. It's the older 5 arm version but would match okay. The inner ring could be changed to a 34 - and those old rings are cheap.

    10 speed obviously but I've heard that it works fine - never tried it though.
    It's not the years, honey. It's the mileage.
