Even better: XTR and a 110mm spider. Much mo bettahtele said:I have 8 speed 105 set up on my bike and was thinking of trying out some compact cranks such as the FSA energy. The info on the cranks say 9/10 speed compatible, does it really matter other than changing the bb? any help is appreciated!
Cranks are fairly agnostic when it comes to 8/9/10spd, so it is likely that 9/10spd cranks would work with an 8spd drivetrain. But in the worst case, Shimano 9spd chains are compatible with 8spd drivetrains, so you could always use a 9spd chain with an 8spd cassette and 9/10spd crankstele said:Anyone else have any ideas?
