comment Bottom bracket length without knowing front chainline (fixed gear)
While I don't know the specifics of your setup, 113mm seems long for a Campa BB. Typical is 102mm - 108mm.

comment Are Campagnolo and Shimano 11 speed chains interchangeable?
@duncanmcgregor, if it's the tool that's the issue, buy the Park tool version. Same job, 1/3 the price.

Thank you! A voice of reason, at last!

This is only "true" to a degree. And it assumes you don't care if the really expensive kit you bought on your bike actually performs at its best.

comment Campagnolo 11 speed crank with 10 speed running gear
This is a more accurate answer. Because the 10 speed crank uses a thicker chain ring, and is spaced farther sort than the 11 speed. The front dérailleur has a correspondingly different throw length. This combo is very likely to cause you a problem. How severe the problem is will be debatable, but it will cause issues. In my experience, dropped chains become a regular problem.

Sorry, but this is very much incorrect. The 10 speed crank uses a thicker chain ring, and is spaced farther sort than the 11 speed. The front dérailleur has a correspondingly different throw length. This combo is very likely to cause you a problem.

comment Replace rear deraileur without breaking the chain
@DWGKNZ: Yes. You need to do the job correctly. That doesn't make it unsafe to do the job.

This not true, unless you are incompetent with your tools. There is no issue with disassembling the dérailleur to remove it.
