I'm thinking of swapping chain sets over. I have a 52/39 on my R5 and a compact on my Ritte. I want to try the 52/39 on the Ritte which is a more aggressive frame compared to the all day riding style of the R5 frame. They are both Rotor oval chain sets. As well as swapping them over and the chains will the front and rear derailleurs need adjusting, and is there anything else I've forgotten?

Thanks J

The front will need adjusting upwards, the rear won't need adjusting if you are sticking to the same size cassette. You will also need to use the longer chain also.
