Wasn't there a version of the Pro 5 Vis that had a larger bolt circle for the second chainring? Somehow in the far dark reaches of my brain there lurks the image of an outer chainring with a bolt circle that would accomodate perhaps a 40 tooth inner ring, and no smaller. In other words, the outer ring was designed to be used with just a second ring, no triple. Or am I just too far over the hill? ;-)
