    You'll have to buy a new chainset, the BCD is different between compact and standard, 39t is the smallest you can fit on a standard.
    I like bikes...

    The other option is to change your cassette. Have you tried the 13-26 or 13-29 options?

    If the Carbon Centaur is an Ultra Torque version, I will be happy to buy the 39/53 from you when you replace it.

    I'm selling a centaur compact 50/34 ultratorque chainset for £65 if you are looking for one. It's only done 30km.
